- We usually have a good mix of genders
- Age range is generally 20-50, with most between 25 and 40, but we’ve had visitors from 17 to 70-something

We are a mix of married, single, same-sex coupled, mixed-sex coupled, polyamorous, monogamous, employed, unemployed, students, Scottish, not-Scottish, trainers, piercings, suits, Doc Martens, purple hair, grey hair, no hair, previously lesbian identified, previously gay identified, previously straight identified, always bi identified, don’t like the term ‘bisexual’, don’t like labels, ‘bi and proud’, feminist, apolitical, creative, spiritual, religious, atheist, party animal, shy, gregarious, disabled … and so on…

Above all, a safe place to be bisexual, or to explore the possibility of being bisexual, where bisexuality is accepted as normal and healthy.

Meetings usually involve a discussion and/or a speaker on a topic of interest to Bi Scotland members, planning future social events, or something fun like a game or watching a video.

Each meeting is different! Sometimes we play games, sometimes we have discussions or bring food, sometimes we do workshops.
