Never been to a play space before? Need a refresher? We encourage everyone to come to an introductory workshop to meet fellow guests and practice consent.
In this educational, creative and possibly very silly workshop you will create a either a penis or vulva fridge magnet using easy-to-use and colourful modelling clay.
Throughout the workshop we will give clear instructions of how to make the models, using correct language for these body parts as well as talking about all of the ways that genitals are pretty amazing! They’ll be plenty of our favourite facts about penises and vulvas as we encourage guests to think of their genitals as just another part of their body to be accepted and loved, just as they are!
Join Mr Wesley Dykes, your friendly neighbourhood fxckboi, for beard crafting and storytelling, as we celebrate and hold space for the weird, wonderful, and not-so-wonderful things we have gone through to be the people we are today.
Please be cognizant that this space is primarily for LGBTQI folks. Allies are more than welcome but please be aware of the space you may be taking up at any time.
A fun, interactive session exploring the theatrical aspects of heartbreak through a combination of gentle movement and drama. Bring your inner drama queen and get playful with some heartbreak classics.
Facilitator: Phil Moore
Flagging and coding, from violets and green carnations to red bandanas, has been a part of queer culture for ages as a way to signal desire and availability to those within an Outsider group. Flagging is also a way to explicitly communicate what you’re interested in and opening up a conversation about specific desires!
I’ll give a brief queer history of how flagging and coding have been used to covertly signal same-gender and kinky desire in times when they were criminalised, followed by a practical workshop on different ways of flagging and what different flags mean, including hankies, femme flagging using nail art and other modern and historical queer signifiers. We’ll discuss modern flagging and position participants to flag during the play parties, in one of many ways we negotiate, navigate and communicate desire.
