We meet on the first Tuesday of every month from 7.30pm - 9.30pm at the Lesbian & Gay Foundation building, as well as having an active social programme between group meetings. As a word of advice, new members should try and arrive early for the main group meetings. After BiPhoria meetings we tend to socialise in Taurus bar on Canal Street - join us there from about 9.45pm on group nights if you miss the main get-together.
