Bi Coffee London meet-up

Biscuit pops along to Bi Coffee London to caffeinate and chat

I strolled through the Saturday bustle of Spitalfields market towards trendy veggie cafe Leon, thinking – tongue firmly in cheek, of course – “What does a bisexual look like?” I needn’t have worried: as I walked through the door I immediately spotted a smiling woman sat behind a bisexual flag sign with a cup of coffee drawn on it. Bingo.

I sat down and began to apologise profusely for never having been to one of their meetings before (what was I thinking?). Fellow Bi Coffee-ers filtered in (see what I did there?) and I was comforted to find that I wasn’t the only one who had been ‘meaning to’ come along for a while and just not made it until today.

I think we were all pretty glad we did finally make it. Introductions made, the conversation flowed nicely, covering topics ranging from BiCon and Bisexual Underground to the Ukrainian military and glasses frames.

I asked Vicky, the smiling woman with the sign, how the group came about. “A few of us were already involved in Bisexual Underground [a monthly meet-up in the Blue Posts pub in Holborn] but realised there was a need for a meet-up which wasn’t in a pub, to cater for people who don’t like pubs or who want to bring children along. We spoke to a lot of people at BiCon and realised there was a big demand for something like this.”

So… if you’re looking for a relaxed, friendly chat with an interesting, approachable crowd – and a top-notch grilled halloumi wrap! – I strongly suggest you join us in Leon on Saturday 5th April. See you there!
