Most lesbian, gay, bisexual, (LGB) youth are happy and thrive during their adolescent years.
Having a school that creates a safe and supportive learning environment for all students and having caring and accepting parents are especially important.
Remember - 80% of getting anything out of being a member is about showing up and taking part, so turn up to a few events (or create an event if you want more variety - anything social, others/the organiser may help plan/run it). If you're a show/study researcher wanting people, reply to the message board thread (https://
forum=678207&parent=130534917) for that (keep it on that thread, anything else discuss with the organiser) / post to our FB page (https:// / ask. Some members have a star '★' or black mark '∎' under their name (in their title), this is to celebrate our best contributing members (the "stars", non-organiser members who've run great events/been a long-term reliable and frequent attendee!
ALWAYS many new faces at every meet alongside the regulars.
We also post regular community events run by other London bi groups (events titled with "[other group]") to publicise them, or for relevant external events (Bi Con, Pride etc.), and as a member you can suggest your own event ideas for us or tell us of relevant events we should check out (but don't spam us/promote commercial media events without checking with organisers first). If you have a commercial event to advertise - talk to me first (organiser John), spam will not be tolerated - we'll block & remove everything asap.
It is a pocket guide to coming out and staying out as bi, 24 colourful A6 pages long. We sadly didn't win in either the Inclusive Networks awards nor the European Diversity Awards, but thanks again there to the people who put us forward and got us on the shortlist. ) will have a selection of bi leaflets on the table. But do please note this is a separate group from our meetup group and for most reliable updates check out the facebook page.You should find them usually on the tables outside the café in the warmer months. Its run enthusiastically by upstanding bi community member(s) and heartily recommended if more relaxed and quiet hanging out in a café is more your thing. And if you do find a bi girl who isn't into exclusive relationships, it's still a really shit chat-up line and will immediately lessen your chances of most women continuing the conversation, let alone open any doors to hot group-sex action. If only you could see our faces when we open the fifth threesome message of the day… Equally, they're no more likely to jump at your suggestion of having an open relationship or to giggle and comply when you tell them to snog their mate in a club for a laugh. Being bi usually means having the capacity to both love and feel sexual desire for more than one gender. Yup, we can live quite happily without male penetration. We can share those painful youthful memories of cringey bra-hook moments (seriously, it still takes practice, even if you know how to do it on yourself). You wouldn't keep asking a straight girl if she was "sure" she was straight, so don't keep asking us to reassess our sexuality. People don't question a frantically masturbating virgin teenage boy when he says he likes those girls on the internet, so why question adult "virgin" bisexuals? "Oh, so you might as well say you're straight, then? Tending towards one gender in general doesn't in any way dilute our attraction to anyone else we like or have liked. We're often open-minded about gender in other ways. Unsurprisingly, given how far society still has to go, a lot of us are quite into our activism and the fight for bi visibility. Bi women are no more likely to cheat on you than anyone else. And one of the most offensive things you can do is to suggest that we're free to get it on with other women because "it doesn't count as cheating" and other women aren't a "threat". How sexist is it to suggest that only sex with a man counts as "real" sex?! It may well have taken us some guts to tell you that, too, because society still seems to be having trouble getting its head round bisexuality. Having a preference for one gender still means we're bi.
