Ian worked on the UK's bi phoneline for about eight years. He'd have loved to get paid for it, but found it so enjoyable, he'd probably have paid to continue doing it.
Much to his surprise, from Oct 2002 to Aug 2007 he actually was been paid for managing the office of a charity which gives support to sex workers. (That job only finished because of the total failure of a fundraising department of eight or more full-time people to match what one person did as half their job.)
Ian remembers the first night of the London Bisexual Group back in 1981, helped run the group for three years, managed the first person paid to work within the UK bi community, helped organise one international BiCon and some UK BiCons, is on the collective that publishes Bi Community News, and does some other stuff too including making yummy chocolate truffles.
Ideal bi-boyf material, really...
What they said: "complex sod" (Giles), "Queen of the Polite Enquiry" (Marcus), "you tut about" (flirt), "What!!!" (Alison), "What!!!" (Jen), "very informative and deliciously helpful" (Kerry), "Oh my fucking god. That was the hottest thing I've ever seen" (anon), "ok, maybe I do like men after all" (anon2), "Lack of respect, wrong attitude, failure to obey authority..." (the committee)
Oh, about half of the things I post are for 'real people' friends (rather than the communities in the friends list or the general public). So if you read this a lot and you're not in the friends list, do drop me an email.
Oh2, if you've followed the hint on another website, and used Google to search for this username, yes this is me :) - email me via the address above (or comment to a post) rather than using their 'let's see how much money we can extract from our users' email system.
