BiRequest has its roots in NYC's queer, fluid and bisexual organizing circles dating back to the late 1980s and early 90s. In 2014, we added a monthly social gathering at Madame X that has continued on with new faces every month since. Starting in 2016, we modified our discussion schedule, alternating nights on the first and third weeks of each month to accomodate university student class schedules. Beginning Mayuary 2017, we are introducing additional offerings: "Bi My Side" for spouses and partners, a new bi-monthly munch, called "Butta" and a gathering for Bi+ leaders to organize... a re-animation of BiRequest's historical antecedent "The Sunday Group."

Our meetings are open to all members of the Bi+ community, as well as bi-friendly and bi-allied folks, of any age, race, gender, ability; likewise for affectional or relational, sexual or spiritual orientations. Ours is a tiny example of the rainbow; a safe space to share your perspective and insights into all things Bi.

PostScript regarding restaurants: If you would like to help expand our palette of dining options, suggestion are welcomed. We need a place that can accommodate about 20 people for about 90 minutes - both in seating us, and relative speed for serving too. We also need the menu to have some vegetarian options, and to be fairly reasonable in cost.
