The highlight of the bisexual calendar, BiCon is coming to Greater Manchester in August. The event, which prides itself on its work on diversity, will be held from the 2nd to the 5th of August at University of Salford Peel Park Campus.
The event is a weekend-long educational and social gathering for bi people, friends, partners and allies. Several hundred attendees are expected, with around 25% attending for the first time.
BiCon has been held annually in a different part of the UK since 1984. This year will be the 36th event. It is one of the UK’s longest running LGBT events and the largest bi specific event in Europe. However, it remains entirely volunteer run with no formal funding. Despite this the event promises to be a celebration of intersectionality offering a warm welcome to everyone with an interest in bisexuality.
