Queering Power is a one-day annual event focused exclusively on the discussion of queer D/s and M/s power dynamics. Each year, your Harvest organizers assemble a fine selection of carefully curated presenters and facilitators and draw together a yummy bunch of pervy queers (ALL genders welcome) for a day of deep reflection, community-building and fun…draising for An Unholy Harvest. This year, Queering Power is back in the bosom of Ottawa, where the venues are slightly more plentiful.

Each year, we work with a different theme or metaphor and use it to build a program of plenaries and breakout sessions. Our past themes have been:

  • 2013: Mindfulness
  • 2014: Business Planning
  • 2015: Creativity
  • 2016: Nourishment
  • 2017: Embracing chaos
  • 2018: Between the covers

What do we mean by “between the covers”? This year’s theme is all about books, pages, and writing things down or writing them off. One workshop stream is curated specifically for writers: Putting it on the Page will feature workshops to help you get your creative juices flowing, whether it’s penning smut, journaling, blogging, or bumping up your sexting. The second stream is all about change: Turning the Page will examine dealing with your own personal plot twists, what you take with you and what you leave behind.

Want more? Here are the general details.

WHEN: June 9, 2018

WHERE: The Montgomery Legion, 330 Kent Street in Ottawa

HOW MUCH: Our sliding scale ranges from $30 to $70. Suggested donation is $50. Please contact us if this is a financial burden. If you’d like to contribute more, you’re also welcome to do so.

All proceeds will go to supporting this year’s Unholy Harvest. We work hard to keep the price of Harvest low, but our costs – especially for a venue – keep going up! This fundraiser can really help keep Harvest super affordable.

WHO: Anyone who is comfortable with self-defining as queer is invited to join us! Yep, cis guys too!

WHAT: Morning snacks and a day of thinky workshops and activities. We’ve booked a space for gathering in the evening for an open mic, followed by a play party!

HOW CAN I HELP? Glad you asked! Let us know if you’d like to help out the day of. We’re looking for people to supply home-made goodies for the morning meet n’ greet especially as well as a couple of all-around helpers for the day itself! If you’d like to donate more cash, some munchies for the evening’s events or just fling some pompoms, drop us a line.
