Well, folks, we’re thrilled to report that our first-ever Queering Power event was a smash success! The event fully sold out, so we welcomed a full house of Harvesters and other pervy queers and raised over $1,000 toward the cost of Harvest 2013. Amazing! Our roster of fabulous presenters (from Toronto, Ottawa, St-Jean-sur-Richelieu and Chicago) took us through a day of inspiring, highly interactive and deliciously thought-provoking discussions, and many of us also enjoyed a delightful unofficial participant-run play party in the evening. We’re very grateful to everyone who came together to help make this happen, and to our generous sponsors, PTS Ottawa and Venus Envy, for their ongoing support of our work.
There was strong demand for Queering Power to become an annual event. We like this idea! It’s a bit too early to make any promises, but watch this space for further details once Harvest 2013 is finished. Do note that if we hold Queering Power annually, you can expect it to fall earlier in the year for 2014 – think more March than June – as we’d like to allow more space between QP and Spring Fling, which is traditionally held in late May. Stay tuned!
