Our friends at JustUs Health have launched a new COVID Hotline! This hotline, managed by JustUs Health's COVID Community Coordinators, is available to anyone who may have questions or concerns regarding COVID, testing sites, prevention, are in need of free personal protective equipment, housing assistance, and more.
Visit covid.justushealth.org or call 612-254-0116!
Need a test?
The State of Minnesota and Vault Medical Services have teamed up to offer at-home COVID-19 saliva testing for any person who believes they need to be tested, with or without symptoms, at no cost! Click here for more information and to request your test!
Bisexual Organizing Project (BOP) is not affiliated with Vault Medical Services.
Need a mask?
There are two ways you can get a mask through BOP!
1. If you need a FREE mask, click here for our Mask Donation Request Form! All masks are hand-made, fabric masks, made by local crafters who have donated their time to BOP's mask drive initiative. Colors and patterns may vary.
2. We have partnered with Seed N Style, who crafted us a collection of custom-made Pride flag masks that are available exclusively on BOP's Etsy Store!
Seed N Style is a Minneapolis based socially conscious queer brand founded by Black, Trans, and Queer folx. They specialize in limited edition, high quality products that make statements. They are proud to serve our community through donations, sourcing supplies locally, upcycling/recycling, and supporting BIPOC businesses whenever and wherever possible.
Masks available through BOP and Seed N Style are not medical grade masks. However, the CDC has recommended cloth masks to help prevent you from spreading particulates and prevent you from touching your face.
Stay safe, Minnesota!
BOP Discussion Group
Monday, November 23
7:00pm - 9:00pm
BOP will host our monthly discussion group, moderated by Barb via Zoom.
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.
November topics: How are folks maintaining connection during the pandemic? What has been the biggest change to life and to relationships? Do you think how you interact with bi+ folks will be forever changed? What are some positives about these changes?
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.
This is not a hook-up space or a mental health/coming out group, just a safe space to have a chat with other Bi+ people.
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.
