Future BiCons – Volunteering
BiCon is run by a group of volunteers each year. Getting involved in volunteering to being part of an organising team, can provide an opportunity to learn new skills as well as contributing something back to the Bi Community. The idea of this session, is for current and past BiCon organisers to provide an outline of the organisational models used for BiCon, providing an outline of team members and what their jobs involved, and to provide an opportunity to ask questions about what is involved in running a BiCon. The session should also include an opprtunity fo those who have not been involved with running a BiCon before an opportunity to register as a potential future volunteer, and also a way to forge future teams to announce bids for 2007, 2008 etc and a way to dicsuss future training opportunites.

Learn a dance routine for fun
I'd like someone to make up an extremely easy peasy dance routine (the same sort of level as the ones for the Macarena and Whigfield's Saturday Night) and offer this as an open-to-anyone session, possibly to run in an evening slot and lead directly onto the dance floor afterwards 🙂

Local Groups For Local Bisexuals
Based on the 2003 Bi Community News article on starting up a local bi social / support group in your area – and keeping it going and growing. Whether you're thinking it would be good to have a local bi group in your area, or are an old hand willing to share good ideas and advice, come along and help grow the network of local bi groups around the UK.

The Angry Eye and Queer History Quiz
A question to the organisers would anyone wish to have a chance to see the video "The Angry Eye" Its a 52 minute equality video I saw at PCS Proud seminar in 2004. Its not specificly bi-orientated as it deals with how racial minorities are treated on a day to day basis. Its set in a closed group session of American students , who from registrationare singled out (unknowingly ) into two groups. The put upon power controlled and those who are in power.Any way may be too political or just raise too many painful thoughts for some people.It is very heavy on emotional content from the viewer. Or just not suitable for BICON. Anyway thought I would mention it . As I may be able to borrow a copy from PCS. Oh also have a 30 question Queer History Quiz if anyone is interested . And a copy of OurStory booklet form PCS Proud: events and people who have shaped the LGBT community BUT it doesnt seem to quote bi-story in the main items or its bibliography .Wonder why unless I dont know the famous bis from the gays / lesbians ?Anyone like a read at BICON or now ?

The Politics of Bisexuality
Two possible sessions i. ) Re-run of W(h)ither Bisexuality ii.) Re-run of Helens analysis from the activist weekend.
