“It boils down to visibility in the end”: We talk to Marcus Morgan about CaBiRet

Following the success of CaBiRet in October, and with whispers on the wind of another event in the new year, we caught up with Marcus Morgan of the Bisexual Index to find out how CaBiRet came about – and what we can hope for in the future. 

Hello Marcus. Let’s get right down to business. How did the idea for CaBiRet come about?

As August progressed I found myself looking ahead to Bisexual Visibility Day. Looking ahead but not so much looking forward. I realised that although there were things planned for the launch of the book I’d been involved with, Purple Prose, I didn’t have any bisexual events I could go to for Bi Visibility Day itself.

There wasn’t anything in London on the day?

That’s right. And not just geographically – the sort of event I would want to go to wasn’t happening. I have very fond… Continue reading

Bi Causes Benefit from CaBiRet

A night of bisexual cabaret (or, as the organisers insist, cabiret) raised over £100 to be split between the Bisexual Index and Bis of Colour

It was standing room only last night, when more than sixty people arrived at the Cavendish Arms in Stockwell for a night of bisexual cabaret.  The event was held to celebrate Bi Visibility Day and featured comedy acts, music, magic and poetry.

“It was a fantastic night,” Marcus Morgan of the Bisexual Index told us. “It’s so great to see people coming together to support our community and celebrate the positives of bisexuality.”

Funds raised at the event – totalling more than £100 – will be split, with half to go to the Bis of Colour group, and half to go to the printing costs of the Bisexual Index.

CaBiRet – An Evening of the Bisexual Variety

cabiret

On 2nd October the Cavendish Arms, Stockwell, hosts an evening of cabaret with a distinctly bisexual flavour.

Your host is bisexual magician and Biscuit fave Marcus Morgan, with other acts TBA. Doors 7.30, but the pub will be serving food from 5pm. Come along, share a laugh (or a groan) and indulge in an evening of entertainment where bisexuality is the norm, not the (begrudging) exception.

The event is free, but bring a long a coin or too as donations will be collected for  various bisexual causes.
