Join BOP in Zoom for an evening of socializing and creating arts and crafts. Let's break up the weekday monotony and get creative this humpday! Bring whatever it is you're working on, share your talent with others, give and watch demos of techniques, or just hang out with a beverage and snack and have a nice conversation. Maybe we can share our bi+ music lists and have some music playing lightly in the background or whatever inspires us to make stuff and hang out. We will begin at 6:30 pm CST and go until about 8:30 pm, but you can come and go as you please/as your schedule allows. It is a Wednesday night after all.
BOP Discussion Group
Monday, 1/18 @ 7:00 pm
Click here for Zoom link!
Come join our discussion group which happens every month. This is a safe and welcoming environment and a great way to navigate bi+ issues and bond with other community members. A Board member facilitator will bring topics to get the conversation started or we can talk about your questions and issues.
January topics: Let's talk about sex, love and dating.
Revealing your orientation to current or prospective partners; dealing with jealousy or irrational fear/phobia that you'll leave them for a member of a different sex; navigating interactions with individuals who think that being bisexual equates with exhibitionism, promiscuity, heightened infidelity risk, or the desire to have threesomes and/or non-monogamous relationships...and more.
If we were to meet in person, we would be in a meeting room at a coffee house, so make yourself comfortable and bring a coffee or a non-alcoholic beverage and comfort foods. You are welcome to bring questions to the group, bounce ideas off others, or just listen and be prepared to have a good time connecting with others.
BECAUSE 2020 Cancelled
The BECAUSE leadership team and the BOP board have been reviewing forecasts for what this Fall will look like including continued COVID hotspots, limitations on travel, and how people are going to be feeling about being large groups. We feel the most responsible action at this time is to cancel BECAUSE 2020. We have explored moving the conference on line as many conferences and gatherings have done and find it is not the best option for BECAUSE.
The BOP board is developing virtual community building that we hope will help bridge this time for our community. Please check out BOP's Facebook Page, Facebook Group, Meetup Group, and Twitter to stay informed of upcoming events.
We are currently in discussion with our location, Wellstone Center, and our planned speakers and special guests to make BECAUSE 2021 one of the best ever. We hope you will join us in October 2021.
