Who we are and what we do

BAV Inc. is a non-profit volunteer-run organisation dedicated to promoting the acceptance of bi+ people* in LGBTIQA+ and mainstream society, providing a fun, safe space where bi+ people can meet, make friends, and talk about their experiences, and informing the bi+ communities about relevant news and opportunities for activism.

We have been running monthly discussion and support groups under various banners since September 2005. We also arrange occasional social events; please check out to the news (home) page to see when these are coming up. You can download a copy of the Bi-Alliance flyer to share and print, or you can request a print copy via email.

Financial membership is encouraged but not mandatory. The fee goes towards costs such as printing our flyers and hosting this website as well as enabling us to attend events where we can raise bi visibility and let more people know of our Bi Chats. The greater our membership the more work we can do!Please take a moment to read the Rules.

If you are interested in joining, please complete the application form on page 15, and either send a scanned copy to sec@bi-alliance.org or hand it to a committee member at one of our events.
