Our group’s regular social on the fourth Thursday every month, currently still online (via Zoom) as an informal unstructured social chat. This month also coincides with John (organiser)’s birthday – fancy a game via Zoom anyone? Bring/eat some cake if you like?
This event is great for new members; very friendly, relaxed atmosphere, definitely social, fun, and happy; not meat-market, just informal chat and optional bring-your-own-drinks. While the group is London-based, for online events we have been happy to welcome people from all over the world – anywhere your waking hours suit our timezone. If you’re part of the bi+ umbrella identity (bisexual, pansexual, heteroflexible/homoflexible, polysexual, a suitable version of queer – basically any m-spec label), or think you might be (e.g. bi-curious or questioning) and can communicate with us, come say hi and hang out!
Supportive partners, and practicing allies also welcome – no biphobia, racism/micro-aggressions, transphobia or other bigotry allowed! If you have extra needs or questions, please get in touch via Meetup messaging/social media/email.
Who/what to expect…
Expect at least 10 of you (pub meets were 30-40 back in 2019), with a good mix of regulars and first-timers (roughly half and half – always a lot of new faces every time), genders (not too far from an even split of men/women, a few of whom might be trans, & non-binary people welcome too), a mix of ethnicities similar to or more diverse than the London population (aka. BAME/POC), and sometimes another neurodiverse person/people. The odd couple/+1 too.
This keeps it fresh and friendly to all – regulars chat to new folk. New members won’t be the only new person (by a long way) so you shouldn’t feel left out. If you turn up after the start and it looks like everyone already knows everyone – it only seems like that; its just how friendly we are. We finish late so we’re used to people coming and going through the evening.
Most people arrive within the first hour, it’s busiest at 9-9.30pm but a crowd is around til at least 10pm, often later (sometimes even a handful til midnight). When you first connect you’ll be in a waiting room, we will let you in after a few seconds (if it takes longer we might be busy, please be patient). Find us at: https://zoom.londonbi.org (will redirect to the zoom meet directly) – join the Meetup group to find out the meet id from the direct link there or message organiser John to ask.
