Event description

Description

Join us August 4-6, 2017 for a weekend of queertranstastic fun, learning, workshops, networking, revelry, and more! This is our first year hosting the Queer Gathering at Twin Oaks Community in rural central Virginia, and we invite you to come participate as an attendee, workshop presenter, and/or performer. The gathering will be a safe and supportive camping event for queer folks and allies of all ages to come together, skill share, make art, build community, dance, and organize. Is there something you'd like to see happen? Email us at queergathering@twinoaks.org and let us know!


Camping Info & What to bring:

Camping is part of the basic registration and you will need to be entirely self-sufficient in your camping equipment. You will need a tent, sleeping bag, and any other sleeping pads, air mattresses or other camp accouterments you might need. There are showers that will have soap, but you should bring your own toiletries (including bug spray and sunscreen) and towel. Other things like flashlight, rain gear, mixed-season clothes and good-natured flexibility are also good ideas. Earplugs will probably come in handy. Other things to keep you comfortable like a back-jack, yoga mat, or camp chair might also be nice. Plan ahead! Twin Oaks will provide breakfast, lunch and dinner, but you may want to bring extra personal snacks. Please- no pets other than service animals. Consider bringing instruments, crafts, literature, fabulous outfits, songs, and skills to share!

Please contact us if you're interested in indoor accommodations (most likely for an added fee).

Facilities and Accessibility:

Our conference site is rustic and mostly wooded with various dirt roads and paths connecting the camping area and various conference site locations. There are various covered spaces but almost no enclosed spaces (not including the indoor accommodation options which are enclosed spaces). The terrain is rough but easily walkable for people with no mobility issues. People with minor mobility issues will need to be careful but shouldn’t have any trouble. People with moderate to major mobility issues should contact us for more information before deciding to come. We have showers with hot water, but they are also rustic. We have both outhouses and commercial porta-potties. There is electricity and there will be a place for you to charge personal electronic devices. Cell reception is decent but sometimes spotty. There will probably not be wifi access during the event.

Sharing Responsibility:

In our strongly individualistic society, sharing and acting in community is an inherently radical act. Participants are asked to do at least one 2-hr workshift during the weekend. Some tasks include (but are not limited to): set-up, registration, childcare, kitchen help, cleaning, and more. Do your part in making this fabulous event possible!
