Pakistani Transgender Candidate
Significant changes are coming about in the world…
“Next month, Pakistan will hold its first election in five years. And just by running, some candidates will be making history. Two female candidates are contesting the election in extremely conservative areas where women have never run for office. And for the first time, transgender people are running as candidates in various parts of the country.”
Since it’s inception in 1999, this day is a call for bisexual people and their families, friends and supporters to recognize and celebrate bisexuality, bisexual history, bisexual community and culture, and 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.
For female bisexuals in the Montreal area, there is a great group you should check out called “Bisexuelles“. They hold small gatherings at a café in the Gay Village about every two weeks, where you can meet, chat and discuss topics of interest with other bisexual women.
For more info, check out their online announcement list, or look for the Bisexuelles event listings on the ClubFetish.ca Montreal/Ottawa Calendar of BDSM, Fetish & Kink events. Their next event will be held this coming Thursday evening, the 25th of September.
