A huge bisexual gathering will be hosted by Los Angeles Bi Task Force (LABTF) at a Hollywood venue. This is a watershed event in the history of bi/pan/fluid organizing on the West Coast! It’s an opportunity to meet and share thoughts, ideas, and dreams for our community. What is the future of our movement? How will we get there? Where do you see yourself in this process?

It will use a structured exercise called the World Cafe large group-dialogue method of http://www.theworldcafe.com/method.html. Trained facilitators will be provided by our partner organization, The Relational Center http://www.relationalcenter.org/dialogue/ who hosted the wildly-successful TranSolidarity event in Los Angeles in February.

More details will follow as November draws nearer. For the latest updates, RSVP to the Bi Unity World Cafe Facebook event page.

If you or your organization would like to explore the possibility of financially sponsoring this important event, please contact LABTF chair Stephanie Ballard at stephanieballard1@gmail.com.

Tara Avery, LABTF member and the cartoonist behind “Gooch”, will be appearing on a panel discussion, Prism Comics: The Bad and the Bold: Pushing the Boundaries with LGBT Characters, on Friday March 16th at 6:30 pm in Room 211 at the Anaheim Convention Center. Prism Comics (the nonprofit organization promoting awareness of LGBT comics, creators, and fans), Brian Andersen (So Super Duper), Marc Andreyko (Manhunter, Torso), Tara Madison Avery (Gooch), Agnes Czaja (Acrobats), Jim McCann (Mind the Gap, Return of the Dapper Men), Bob Schreck (Legendary Comics), and other creators will explore what makes a strong, realistic depiction of an LGBT character, what makes or breaks an edgy depiction of an LGBT character, and what is going too far.
