Details and Schedule of events: http://gayburners.com/burning-man-queer ... hip-summit
Cost: Sliding scale will be asking for $25.00 / attendee for food and event expenses. No one who wishes to participate will be turned down for lack of funds.
The QB has some pretty amazing projects on the horizon and there is hope not only to see folks & other people of the LGBT+ elements of Burning Man turn out:
[b]March 16th to the 18th the "1st of its kind Queer Burners Leadership Summit" in San Francisco. Register today and see the current agenda linked on http://www.queerburners.com
.... Not Queer? Not Gay? Not...? Your participation will make our community stronger.[/b]
[i]WE the queers, in a formidable and fierce union, live by the 10 principles on and off the playa. There is a passive attitude by a lot of people on how and where the Queer Burner Culture fits into the Burner Culture as a whole. We are radically inclusive even if it is on the D-L (down-low) but offer a lot to the culture and are not always recognized for it.[/i]
These Leadership Events are places where the growing and expressive LGBT+ participants of Burning Man can gain a stronger voice for our Queer Culture and our community at-large that is not limited by the boundaries of a sexual orientation.
Not flag waving. Not marching in a circle with a rainbow flag. Just looking around seeing the LGBT+ influence and looking for a stronger place or even looking at BMHQ to [i]potentially [/i]consider Regional Contacts for Queer Burners.
Queer? Some see this word as derogatory? Some see this as mutually inclusive? Whatever power this word has it is empowering to use it in a positive mission.
Bottom line... this is about community. Participation and active self motivation is what makes Burning Man work because it is built by the people there and using the 10 Principles as a guide (this and more is explained further on the web site).
Join in if this is your thing and you want to make a difference. We are not looking to swim in the dark waters of politics, just to have a voice in the game. We can do this in unity and support each other with community events, fund raising camp to camp or with charity work, cross promotion and general support.
Thanks for reading and join in if motivated. Please share and invite others along. Join our Facebook (linked on site) or follow on Twitter (@queer_burners)
