Bi-N.S.W. is the umbrella body for all the various groups within the bisexual community of New South Wales. It is an organization which provides an opportunity for bisexual and bisexual friendly people to meet together in non-discriminatory, welcoming, comfortable, safe, and friendly spaces, make new friends and share worthwhile information. The founding group of our community is the Sydney Bisexual Network who get together for monthly social drinks but also meet for serious discussions. The Network is not a counselling service (though we'll always have sympathetic ears) and is also not a 'pick-up club' or swingers group, however people do make new friends and even lovers, we simply aim for a harassment-free social space where we can relate to each other, educate each other, and have fun.
