What is BiCon?
BiCon is a three and a bit day weekend-long educational and social gathering for bi people, their friends, partners, and others with a supportive interest in bisexuality. We don’t all use the labels “bi” or “bisexual” or even agree on what it means to be bi, but bisexuality is the common theme.
If you are wondering if it is ‘Con’ as in convention or conference we don’t think we have to be just one! As a convention, we are social and fun with discussions, dancing, games, music, crafting and costume parties. As a conference we have more serious workshops on issues around bisexuality and related (and not-so-related!) topics. BiCon is a space to be completely yourself, make new friends and catch up with old ones, and it has a totally accepting atmosphere; BiCon attendees often say BiCon feels like home.
BiCon is has been held in a different part of the UK each year since 1984 and in 2020 and 2021 BiCon has gone virtual to enable the event to continue during Covid. There are usually several hundred attendees, with around 25% attending for the first time.
This year BiCon is being held from a Thursday night to a Sunday afternoon, but as long as you have a ticket you can come along at any time and join in. Virtual BiCon is run by asking people to sign up for a ticket which gets them access to the whole event, and then everyone will be emailed a timetable of sessions that are being run with the links to sign up for the sessions they want to attend.
Ticket are pay what you can; the suggested amount is £10.
BiCon is proud to implement a Code of Conduct and is committed to making our event as accessible as possible.
