Event description
Highlighting the voices of queer psychedelic visionaries and examining the history of psychedelics from queer and non-binary perspectives.

About this Event

Queering Psychedelics 2019 is a 2-day conference being organized the Chacruna Institute of Psychedelic Plant Medicines and is the first conference of its kind highlighting the voices of queer visionaries within the psychedelic community and examining the history of psychedelics from queer and non-binary perspectives. As the emerging psychedelic renaissance reaches a pivotal moment of mainstream interest and regulatory legitimacy, it is vital that traditionally under-represented communities share a seat at the table and have their voices heard so as to ensure access to all the benefits that psychedelics and plant medicine offer. Additionally, it is vital that queer spaces be established for exploring the unique needs, gifts, and strengths that LGBTQI communities bring to psychedelics and psychedelic medicine.

This conference is Part of Chacruna’s Women, Gender Diversity, and Sexual Minorities speaker series and is being held at the beautiful and historic Brava Theatre in the vibrant Mission District of San Francisco.

About Chacruna

The Chacruna Institute of Psychedelic Plant Medicines is dedicated to providing public education and cultural understanding about psychedelic plant medicines and promoting a bridge between the ceremonial use of plant medicines and the emergent field of psychedelic science and psychedelic-assisted therapy. We educate the public and create cultural understanding and legitimacy regarding these substances so that they may cease to be stigmatized and outlawed. We also produce high-quality research on plant medicines and psychedelics, and
help propagate academic knowledge in more accessible formats, including via our speaker series and conferences.
