The BiCon team are here to make sure the weekend runs smoothly and is fun for all. Meet the team below!
Claire L H is the team lead and coordinator for this year’s BiCon. She’s been to six BiCons ever since Edinburgh in 2013. 2019 is her first time organising which makes her super excited, and hosting it at the university she went to makes it even better. She’s a cat mother, extrovert, crafter, board game geek and feminist (not necessarily always in that order!)
Nathan is responsible for social media and organising the sessions during BiCon. He has been involved with the LGBTQ+ community since 2012 and during that time he has been General Secretary and Chair of the Lancaster University LGBTQ+ association, during which time he went to the NUS conference to represent the Queer community at Lancaster. He looks forward to being part of the 2019 BiCon and seeing all of the amazing people who will deliver their sessions.
Kate is doing bookings this year. She was on the BiCon team in 2014 and ran BiCon 2016. When not helping to organise amazing queer events, she enjoys sweet alcohol and kayaking.
Claire H finally accepted being bi/pan about 3years ago after a difficult few years. They also accepted they’re “gender-Claire” about the same time (they use the title Mx and any pronouns, they really don’t mind) along with poly/relationship anarchist. They’re ‘a bit of a leftie activist’ and a disability rights activist. For BiCon they’re organising sponsorship and accessibility. They love yarn craft and turning people into a zombie by the power of their massage skills.
Carol will be running the desk for BiCon2019. She claims to be ‘a pretty average bisexual polyamorous pagan geek with a passion for games’ (say that 10 times quickly). This will be her third time as a BiCon team member. When not working or organising events she is usually being a dog bed for her border collie.
Graham was born in 1972 and has known he was bi since the early 80s. Graham is a travel specialist and hug aficionado. This is his 2nd BiCon, but he has had experience helping out at Trek Cons as well as Discworld.
Greetings from Dawn! 2019 will be her third BiCon but first time on the organisational team. Dawn is a big fan of plant-based junk food, socialism, and drawing/making thing with varying degrees of competency. She is a reluctant runner but loves yoga.
Az is Claire L H’s bestie/victim of TMI/sometime room-mate. They’re queer, agender, non-monogamous, kinky, and spent too much time reading philosophy during an impressionable period of their life. Az has been reluctantly dragged onto the team as the ‘Person in Black’ to sort out pesky random jobs. They also designed the BiCon 2019 logo. When not strutting around in a dapper suit and cool shades, they run a small Etsy shop called Kraken & Crow, volunteer for their local chapter of Food Not Bombs, and try not to cry.
