Workshops

The Twin Oaks Queer Gathering is open for workshop proposals! Do you
have an idea for a workshop you would be interested in offering at
the Queer Gathering? Please fill out the form below.

Here is a list of some workshop topics we´d like to see included in
the weekend, but also we are open to hearing proposals about any
other content that you are passionate about, which could include
other queer-related issues or also topics that are not specifically
queer-related, eg. skill sharing, arts & crafts, sustainability,
Black Lives Matter activism, personal/interpersonal growth, etc.

-trans identity
-gender identity
-queer in and out of community, economic justice
-queer relationship models, how to love and treat each other
-misogyny and privilege in trans spaces
-consent
-resistance, political organizing
-domestic violence in queer communities
-heart circles

Workshops can be open to anyone at the gathering to participate in,
or can also be limited to a certain demographic who may share
specific experiences/concerns, etc. We assume that workshops will be
open to any participant at the event; if you want something different
than that, please indicate that clearly in your description.

Workshop slots are one-and-a-half hours long. The conference site is
rustic and mostly outdoors. There is limited electrical access.
Presentations requiring projectors or amplified sound can be
accommodated if requested in advance.
Presenters are encouraged to participate in the whole weekend.

Registration fees are partially waived for presenters. Camping is the
standard accommodation; indoor accommodations are available for a
fee. Please contact queergathering@twinoaks.org for more information.
