Sheffield – Wednesday 23 September 2009

Smutty Storytelling for Celebrate Bisexuality Day.

How better to mark International Celebrate Bisexuality Day on 23rd September than with Bisexual Smutty Storytelling, and a bit to eat beforehand. That’s what the Sheffield Bi Group have lined up with the fabulous Jacqueline Applebee, all the way from London for your delectation! Bisexuals, friends and allies welcome!

Venue: Coop cafe on London Rd, Sheffield Time 7-10pm Sheffield group say, “The cafe will have yummy food at reasonable prices. You can bring your own wine (£2 corkage) and stories will start from 8.30pm.” The event is free, but donations for Jacqui’s travel costs for coming up from London would be welcomed.

Norwich – Tuesday 22 September 2009

Hot on the heels of the first Norwich LGBT Pride festival comes the city’s first big party to mark International Celebrate Bisexuality Day.

The event will be at the Norwich Playhouse Bar St George’s Street, with husband-and-wife DJ 78 and DJ Hilly – DJ 78 plays, well, 78rpm discs, mostly swing, early rock’n’roll, and such – but for this event he promises to mix it up a bit and play a bit of everything from the ’20s til the present day (when did you last see gramophones next to normal record decks?) Hilly plays 7″ singles, predominantly soul, Motown and disco. She will be delivering a ‘high camp’ set… making for a really ‘up’, party atmosphere. There’s also talk of a balloon sculptor, making risque and silly balloon models for partygoers.

Then there’ll be a stall with Pride merchandise and (of course) bi resources. At midnight there’ll be the big announcement that it’s the beginning of Bi Day itself. So: 8pm – 12:30am, 22nd Sept, and best of all… FREE ENTRY!
