This assembly is home to all queer|feminist people attending camp to find each other & hang out. If there are enough of us, it should be easy to make this assembly possible & wonderful. So please join and help to realize this! :)
We are a few queer/feminist/trans*/intersectional people who want to meet each other, feel safe, and make friends. You can bring yourself, drinks, food, or anything you like. We will discuss about what it's like to identify as queer in tech, as a feminist, as an intersectional person concerned with oppression in a predominantly white-male-heterosexual context.
This assembly is meant to be a safe space. Safe spaces can be understood as spaces that are created to share common values, whether explicit, through a community agreement, or implicit through the sharing of values. They enable members of a group to flourish, empower themselves and create community. They are also about pushing boundaries to confront all forms of sexism, racism and ablesim, among others, as these are values we internalize in our societies growing up. Safe spaces are an opportunity to learn more about ourself and others to confront these internalised oppression.
If you do not self-identify as queer and feminist, you are allowed to attend but please be mindful to not take up all the space for yourself, like by asking questions that are answered in easily accessible resources such as the Geek Feminism Wiki. This is neither a place to ask people what they mean by basic terms such as "privilege" or "toxic masculinity", nor for discussing these terms. Educate yourself via the Wiki.
Maybe it's nicer to ask people what's their preferred pronoun if you're not sure. "Are you a boy or a girl" is not an accepted question.
