Welcome to the Bi+ Support Group at Harriet Hancock Center. We are the newest group at the center. We have peer support meetings twice a month; Bi+ Space meets the 1st and 3rd Monday of the month from 7-9pm. This is a meeting open to anyone who identifies as bisexual, pansexual, poly/omni/multisexual, questioning, or MGA (multiple gender attracted). This is a good place to come and speak with people who understand what you’re going through and are willing to listen. We also have a Bi+ 101, on the 2nd Monday of the month from 7-8:30. This is an educational program where all are welcome to come and learn more about what it means to be Bi+ and the issues facing this often misunderstood but important component of the LGBTQ+ community. This meeting is opened to the public and you don’t have to identify as Bisexual+ to come and learn about the Bi+ community. Come learn how to be a better ally to the Bi+ community by staying up to date with the problems affecting the bisexual+ community. Have questions or concerns, please email us at BiSpace@harriethancockcenter.org or find us on facebook at: https://www.facebook.com/colabiplusspace/
Ana Kilmer is a bisexual advocate who grew up in Atlanta, GA but now lives in Columbia, SC. She believes that there needs to be more advocacy for MGA's (multiple gender attracted) and that Bi+ people deserve to have a voice and have their own space. She tries to help individuals come to terms with their own sexual identities and to have a voice for themselves. Ana attended Georgia Gwinnett College for two years, she is currently taking a break but plans to go back to college to finish a degree in occupational therapy. In her free time she loves to volunteer, hike, be with her dogs and just be outside as much as possible. Ana is actively involved at the Harriet Hancock Center. For more information, you can contact Ana at, BiSpace@harriethancockcenter.org
