The Bi Book Club meets once a month to discuss bi-themed books and the issues they raise. People of all orientations and genders welcome! Dinner after nearby.

Our current book is Recognize: The Voices of Bisexual Men edited by Robyn Ochs & H. Sharif Williams (Dr. Herukhuti.) For March, we’ll be reading the last four pieces of the section on Institutions. Plus the sections on Anger Angst & Critique and maybe a bit of Bodies & Embodiment. We plan to continue reading 2 sections per month of Recognize until we’re done with the book. Pick out some phrases or paragraphs that you’d like to discuss, that inspired you, or that struck you because of their elegant turn of phrase or the meaning behind it. If you havent had time to finish the readings, come anyway because we read passages from the book aloud for discussion. As usual, we’ll also be using the text as a jumping off point to further discussion of bisexual issues and personal experiences.

Getting Books: We urge you to purchase your print copy at BGSQD and support the only LGBT bookstore in New York City. Especially since they are hosting us in their space! If you prefer e-books, just get them your usual way.

Deciding Books: The group votes on what book to read next.

The Bi Book Club meets at the Bureau of General Services-Queer Division on the last Thursday of each month.
