As usual, I’ll be attending BiCon, the UK’s annual bisexual convention. It’s a great opportunity to explore personal, political, ethical and spiritual issues relating to bisexuality, with workshops, social space and lots of opportunities to meet other bisexuals and allies.

18 August 2018, London: London BiFest

A day of workshops, socialising and conversation for bisexuals and allies in the London area. I’ll be giving a short talk about the No Pride in War campaign and queer pacifism.

A century after World War One, we are no longer conscripted to fight. Instead, our taxes are conscripted to fund war and our minds are conscripted to support it. This residential course is a chance to explore how we can resist warfare and militarism today. I will be co-teaching with the excellent Hannah Brock at the Woodbrooke Quaker Study Centre in Birmingham. Bookings are already open and both Quakers and non-Quakers are welcome. Bursaries are available if the cost is a problem for you.

In my job at the Peace Pledge Union, I will be working alongside many others to promote a positive and progressive message for Remembrance Sunday: we need to remember all victims of war, resist militarism and work for peace. On the Sunday, I will be at the PPU’s alternative Remembrance ceremony in Tavistock Square, London. I’ll also be involved in other events leading up to this time and there will be related events around the UK.
