Description

Please join us for our next rope practice and discussion group for (and by) trans and umbrella folks including non-binary, genderqueer, two-spirit and any other gender divergent identity as well as queer folks who have lived experience with the trans communities – i.e. interpersonal relationships (read: you have sex with trans people).

Intersectional and Welcoming Space Vibes:

This is an event for any (queer, trans) body. We celebrate diversity and eagerly welcome all races, ethnicities, relationship orientations, body sizes, abilities, religions, etc. While this is a trans run and centered space, we broaden this to queers who are trans adjacent but ask that cishet folks stay home so we can continue making this a safe(r) space.

We prioritize consent and trauma informed interactions. We have zero tolerance for someone making others feel unsafe. We believe in utilizing alternative justice models such as transformative justice to attempt to resolve conflicts.

Beginners are welcome. We are planning to do some learning and some experimenting – all very chill, courageous/safe(r) but chill. Rope and other equipment are not required but feel free to bring what you have and your enthusiasm. Registration is ideal so we can continue to facilitate a courageous space but exceptions can be made and you can register onsite because we know how it goes. Late entries are highly discouraged. Event start time is are at 6:30pm but please come 15 minutes early if this is your first time at one of our events. Doors will be locked at 7:00pm.

Please register here!

About the Facilitators:

This event is organized by a small group of trans people and sponsored by -Conspiracy of Geniuses (CoG). CoG seeks out artists with intersecting identities; creating spaces to create work/voice/history. A healing arts project of CoG – Rad (Radical, Accessible, Decolonizing) Care is creating mutual (aid) liberation through community care frameworks centering marginalized intersectional voices. Art is community care. CoG/Rad Care are two sides of the same coin. We are artists who do community care work. We see exploring ropes as an artistic form of self/community care that affirms our bodies and sexuality. The organizers are all trans people of various gender (and other) identities.
