Annual Bisexuality Day – September 23rd

First observed in 1999, Bisexual Pride Day is observed every September 23rd by members of the bisexual community and their supporters.

This day is a call for the bisexual community, their friends and supporters to recognize and celebrate bisexual history, bisexual community and culture, and all the bisexual people in their lives.

This celebration of bisexuality in particular, as opposed to general LGBT events, was conceived as a response to the prejudice and marginalization of the bisexual persons by some in both the straight and greater LGBT communities.

Bisexual Pride Day is celebrated in the United States, Canada, Australia, as well as Germany, Japan, New Zealand, Sweden and the United Kingdom.

The Bisexual Awareness Week, also known as BiWeek, is an annual celebration week held on September 19th to the 26th. The celebration promotes acceptance of the bisexual community as well as attempts to create a platform for advocating Bisexual rights

A Quebec Long Weekend

Quebec’s provincial holiday, known as “La fête St-Jean” is quickly approaching and almost everyone is looking forward to a long holiday weekend.

I am looking forward to spending time with my beloved Partner, Oudjat — as work obligations meant that we missed out on time together last weekend. So I guess we’ll be trying to make up for it this weekend!

At least the weather isn’t looking so outrageously hot as it has been earlier this month. There’s a bit of cloud expected, and even the possibility of a thunderstorm on Sunday; but that won’t stop us from having fun.

We are also looking forward to attending Saturday’s BDSM play party at our favourite kinky home-away-from-home, the Club L’Espace dungeon — located in Montreal’s popular downtown Village area.

The Gay Village is currently in it’s summertime pedestrian mode, and is sporting it’s colourful decorative rainbow balls overhead.

“Deliciously Disabled” Sex-Positive Party during the Parapan Am Games

A sex party is planned for disabled individuals in Toronto on August 14th, during the Parapan Am Games which has drawn more than 1,000 athletes with disabilities to the region. But don’t call it an orgy…

“An orgy is when everybody comes together and has sex together,” explained one of the event’s organizers. “This is a sex-positive play party. The difference is that people can attend the event but they don’t have to participate if they don’t want to — they can be voyeurs, they can enjoy it like you would enjoy any other type of party … but then there’s the added bonus of being able to be intimate with your partner or explore some sexual activity if you want to.”

The event’s organizers say that while most discussions about accessibility for the disabled focus on physical barriers, it’s also important to look at the emotional and social hurdles that people with disabilities face, such as the widespread belief that they aren’t sexual beings.

“Access (to sexuality) is such a major barrier for people with disabilities — I don’t think there’s any other group in society that, depending on the level of their physical limitation, can’t even pleasure themselves sexually,” said Stella Palikarova, a disability awareness consultant.

“You can imagine trying to go through life being completely unable to have any sort of sexual relief or even to think that you are perceived by others as being sexually desirable or a sexual person,” said Palikarova, who uses a wheelchair. “That becomes a really major human rights issue for me.”

As buzz around the event grows, a spokeswoman with the Council of Canadians With Disabilities said the issue the party seeks to highlight is an important one.

“The reality is that we are sexual beings,” said vice-chairwoman Pat Danforth. “It’s an issue that remains seldom talked about, which I find quite bizarre.” Danforth, who herself uses a wheelchair, said she’s met a number of individuals with significant disabilities who’ve told her “no one ever gave them permission before to be sexual.”

“With this event, one of the things it will do is, it will give people permission to have an opportunity to explore their own sexuality,” she said. “If it’s in such a way that it’s demonstrating a healthy take on sexuality, then that’s a good thing. It makes people aware and it makes some people less uncomfortable.”

Event Details: The location is at Buddies in Bad Times theatre (which is fully accessible). and it can hold 125 people including roughly 25 wheelchairs. Tickets are $20 each. Personal support workers can attend for free, and there will be interpreters for the hearing impaired.

Montreal’s Divers/Cité Festival On Edge Of Bankruptcy

Divers/Cité

Founded in 1994, Divers/Cité was responsible for the organization of the popular “Divers/Cité Festival”, a celebration of lesbian, gay, bisexual, transsexual and transvestite pride.

As of March 3rd, 2015, it sought protection from creditors, thus ending all it’s activities. According to documents from the Office of the Superintendent of Bankruptcy Canada, total debt amounted to nearly $ 214,500. A third of the debt consists of salaries ($ 71,500) while the rest is divided between 23 other creditors.

Usually held in the Village, the festival was moved to the Old Port of Montreal in the summer of 2012, a blow by Suzanne Girard, co-founder and CEO of the organization.

“Since we were on the dock of the Old Port, we ate all our financial reserves”, she had said in the” Fugues magazine. “The fact that it is a free outdoor event, it was never profitable.”
