Experience Queer Joy in the Outdoors!
This festival is for anyone who self identifies as a member of the 2SLGBTQIA+ community. This is an all ages event - anyone under 18 must be accompanied by an adult! There are no qualifiers or boxes to check. Come as you are, come with curiosity. We cherish the intersectionality of the greater 2SLGTBTQIA+ community. We believe all lived experience is valid.
Daytime activities and clinics include:
Community centered workshops
Outdoor yoga classes
Evening activities will include:
Community based activities
Professional athlete presentations
A Saturday brand/artist vendor market.
This is an all-ages event and anyone under 18 years of age must be accompanied by an adult.
The purpose of this festival is to create an inclusive environment for folks to be able to take up space and feel more protected from homophobia, transphobia and misogyny. Our community has been historically under-represented in the outdoor industry and we aim to change that. In order to reach a broader audience, we created this festival to center and uplift the 2SLGBTQIA+ community in the outdoors as well as create programs that serve more diverse interests. With everything going on in the world especially the onslaught of political and cultural violence against our community, we hope this event can foster a deeper sense of belonging, connection, and inspiration!
