Bisexual Men’s Conferences Set for May in Albuquerque and Oklahoma City
ALBUQUERQUE, NM - Two Bi Men Conferences are set for May 2011 by the Bi Men Network: the Southwest Bi Men Conference to be held in Albuquerque, New Mexio over the weekend of May 13, 14, and 15, 2011 and the Heartland Bi Men Conference to be held in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma over the weekend of May 20, 21, and 22, 2011.
Both Bi Men Conferences are hosted by the Bi Men Network - www.bimen.org - the world’s largest social and support organization with a bisexual male focus. The Bi Men Network - founded 12 years ago - now has over 250,000 bisexual, bi-curious and gay adult male members worldwide.
Research has shown that as many as 15 per cent of the population may be bisexual. Other recent studies have shown that as many as 40 per cent of adult men have engaged in men having sex with other men with many not considering themselves either gay or bisexual. Bisexuals remain the least visible and least vocal of the sexual minorities today.
Even after a dozen years on the scene, Mac McCloud, Founder and President of the Bi Men Network - www.bimen.org - says: "There are still so very few resources available for bisexual and bi-curious men to exhange information and ideas about their unique and largely misunderstood sexual orientation and to seek and receive support for coping with their life issues as bisexual men today."
The new official Human Rights Commission Report out of San Francisco has highlighted the problems of the demonization of bisexuals by many in both the straight and gay worlds and the problems bisexuals suffer caused by their continuing relative invisibility in today’s world.
These two Bi Men Conferences will focus exclusively on issues specific to bisexual and bi-curious adult men - gathering together in a safe and supportive environment to dialogue on their issues of concern, including their feelings of invisibility and social pressures to remain in the closet. Attendees will find a supportive and nurturing environment where they can be themselves and experience real acceptance.
Both Bi Men Conferences commence with Welcome Receptions 5 to 8 pm on Friday and last through Saturday and Sunday with a variety of both serious and educational programs as well as fun and lively social events.
The Bi Men Network has hosted many such Bi Men events over the last 12 years and one of the most cherished benefits of these events is the sense of brotherhood and camaraderie fostered there. Mac McCloud notes: "For many attendees, this is their very first opportunity to ever be in a room with many other men similar to them and where their own bisexuality or bi-curiousity is both accepted and well understood."
Early Registration is only $69 and ends on May 1, 2011 by mail or online at: http://www.bimen.org/contributionpage.htm and the fee after that date is $100 per event. Men may attend portions of these events at lesser sums if they make arrangements with the Bi Men. No walk-ins allowed to protect the privacy and discretion of the attendees. All proceeds benefit the Bi Men Network - www.bimen.org.
