The Bi Lives discussion group begins this week at our old meet-up venue Cafe Kino. Come join us on Thursday July 18th at 7pm. Here is some more information:
Come and discuss what the bi commuity in Bristol is all about and the issues affecting our lives.
At this session we are really interested to hear your thoughts on bisexuality and language. For a long time now some philosophers and literary theorists have proposed that language does not reflect reality or get it’s meaning from the world – rather the opposite; Reality is in large part constructed by language and how we use it, and it is our use of language that determines meaning in our lives. How do these sorts of ideas inform the way we understand bisexuality and our bi lives?
Some questions could include
How does the world speak about bi?
How does bi complicate the language we use, in the LGBT scene or otherwise?
What does ‘bi’ mean to you?
How has your own language changed since coming out as bi or becomming involved in the bi community?
So, if you have any thoughts on these questions, or questions of your own, please do join us on Thursday and help us start to build up our knowledge and understanding of bi lives in Bristol. We’d love to hear from you and everyone is welcome :)
