Bisexual people are being invited to join a network offering support and information, fun activities and an opportunity to make new friends.
Bi Network is a new social group for bisexual people age 16 to 25 and living in Brighton, Hove and Sussex.
Youngsters will be able to discuss what matters to bisexual people, as well as take part in drama, games and film nights.
Mel Berry, Bi Network facilitator, said: "Being a bi young person may be seen as being cool. In reality it's very different, identifying as bi means you can experience phobia from many communities, not only the heterosexual community, but the LGT ones too.
"Many people don't realise bi people have specific needs and think we just fall into the LGT categories. That's really not the case; bi young people face a very different range of issues and therefore can need very different support."
"As much as the Bi Network will be a place of support and safety; it will also be a place to have fun and meet like-minded young people."
People need to register in advance for the group which will meet in Brighton on the second Wednesday of every month from 5pm to 7pm. The first meeting is on May 9.
