THE BOOK

Purple Prose: Bisexuality In Britain

An anthology edited by Kate Harrad

Published last year, this crowd-funded guide to all aspects of bisexual life is a must-read for bi people, partners, friends and other allies. Sections by a diverse range of contributors tackle coming out, gender, biphobia, dating and relationships, kink, polyamory, disability, race, faith, age, work, pop culture and activism. All this plus a great (and currently bang up to date) resource list makes Purple Prose an essential addition to your bookshelf. 

£15.99, Thorntree Press

 

THE DATE FOR YOUR DIARY

Local groups around the UK

Various dates

According to the best resource we know of (bi-five to Bi Community News), there are currently local bi groups meeting in Bath, Belfast, Birmingham, Brighton, Bristol, Cardiff, Cork, Derby, Dublin, East Midlands, Edinburgh, Glasgow, Leeds, Liverpool, London, Manchester, Newcastle, Nottingham, Reading, Sheffield, Swansea, Wales, Winchester/Wessex and Wolverhampton. And if there's nothing in your area or what there is doesn't float your boat, it's easier than ever to start something new thanks to websites like MeetUp.com. London, for example, boasts the Bi The Way group - a monthly get-together for the over-50s - and the rather fabulous Bi.W.Hitched network for bi women in long-term relationships. Check out the list at bicommunitynews.co.uk/local-groups, which also offers a useful A-Z guide to starting up a group and tips for bi-group newbies.

 

THE ONLINE MAGAZINE

Biscuit - thisisbiscuit.co.uk

DIVA does its best to be as inclusive of bi women as it should, but sometimes you just want to read something that puts you at the heart of the story, right? Every story. And luckily there's a fabulous community-based web-mag expressly designed for "women who won't pick a side". Biscuit offers news, views, reviews, previews, advice and listings - and its editors are always on the look-out for contributors, so get involved!

 

 

Only reading DIVA online? You're missing out. For more news, reviews and commentary, check out the latest issue. It's pretty badass, if we do say so ourselves.
