Bi Pride Weekend: Chicago, USA

DATE: Friday, September 23, 2011 7:00 PM - 9:00 PM
LOCATION: Center on Halsted 3656 North Halsted
http://www.centeronhalsted.org
PRICE Seating is limited, First come - First Serve. Free event, all are welcome.

DESCRIPTION: Celebrate Bisexuality Day was first organized on September 23 in the late 1990's by Wendy Curry, Michael Page (creator of American Bisexual flag), and Gigi Raven Wilbur. The event is a reaction to the Bisexual Erasure that bisexual persons experience by both the straight and greater LGBT communities. The historic day continues to ensure Bi visibility and to emphasize the importance of equal inclusion of Bi individuals. Last year, Chicago hosted an awesome panel of Bi and Queer activists who inspired this year's happening.

Once again, Br. Michael Oboza, Founder of Bisexual Queer Alliance Chicago, is organizing this important day in Chicago's Bisexual Activism history. The one and only Karen McReady, Vice President of Bisexual Queer Alliance Chicago, is hosting a panel of Bisexual people as they share their coming out stories. Followed by a Q and A and Networking hour.

Bi Pride Weekend: Westchester County, NY, USA

Come enjoy Celebrate Bisexuality Day at The LOFT, the LGBTQ safe space on 252 Bryant Avenue in White Plains in Westchester County NY.

On Friday September 23rd starting at 7:30 PM, we will be showing the popular bisexual & lesbian themed romantic comedy "Rose By Any Other Name" by Kyle Schickner of FenceSitter Films.

Bisexual NYC

The film is a wry and witty view of biphobia in the lesbian/gay and straight communities.

The story follows the main characters Rose a comfortably out woman who identifies as lesbian and Anthony a decent progressive straight guy who serendipitously meet and then unexpectedly find themselves falling for each other. Rose has to navigate the reaction of her lesbian friends (they aren't thrilled!) while Anthony too has to deal with his equally confused straight buddies who are equally nonplussed.

So come have fun Celebrating Bisexuality Day, watch a bi film, and support a bi filmmaker and activist!!!

Rose By Any Other Name

We are pleased to announce that Kyle Schickner himself will be there for a Q&A after the film:

About the artists:
Geoff Kagan Trenchard’s poems have been published in numerous journals including Word Riot, The Nervous Breakdown, The Worcester Review, SOFTBLOW and Pemmican. He has received endowments from the National Performance Network, Dance Theater Workshop, The Zellerbach Family Foundation and the City of Oakland to produce original theatrical work. As a mentor for Urban Word NYC, he taught weekly poetry workshops in the foster care center at Bellevue as well as in Rikers Island with Columbia University’s “Youth Voices on Lockdown” program. He is a recipient of a fellowship from the Riggio Writing and Democracy program at the New School and the first ever louderARTS Writing Fellowship. He has performed poetry on HBO’s Def Poetry Jam, at universities throughout the United States, and in theaters internationally as a member of the performance poetry troupe The Suicide Kings. He lives in Brooklyn and can be found at kagantrenchard.com.

Robin Renée is Mantra-Pop! Conscious and melodic with an edge, think of blending the voices of Chrissie Hynde and Joan Armatrading with thewordsmith intelligence of Elvis Costello and the mystical passion of Indian chant. The Courier News calls her “one of the Garden State’s finest singer-songwriters” and the San Francisco Spectrum says “Her smooth delivery… deliver(s) wonderful post-modern soul to the masses.”
Originally from Little Rock, Arkansas, Jessica Lovelace-Chandler is a stand-up comic as well as a sketch writer. She was previously a member of the famous ACME Comedy Theater in Hollywood. She has performed with Larry Miller, Natasha Leggero, Reggie Lee, Mayim Bialik, Walt Willey, and Keith Coogan just to name a few.

rorie kelly is a small redheaded tornado of sound. First-time listeners often comment, “I can’t believe that voice came out of that body.” rorie writes catchy, melodic rock songs that she plays with enough passion to break guitar strings–and go right on playing without batting an eye. The singer/songwriter has been compared to artists ranging from Fiona Apple to Janis Joplin to Liz Phair. She has opened for Alix Olsen and Jen Chapin, and was named one of Long Island’s “Top Ten Indie Artists You’ve Never Heard Of” by Pulse Magazine.
