Queering Power is full for 2017! If you’d like to be added to the waiting list, please fill out the waiting list registration form.  We’ll contact you if a space opens up!

Queering Power is a one-day annual event focused exclusively on the discussion of queer D/s and M/s power dynamics. Each year, Jacqueline and Andrea 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, for the first time, Queering Power will take place in Toronto on April 1.

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: Our theme this year is Organized Chaos. Appropriately, we’ve had a last-minute snafu with our original venue, but managed to get a new one. So we’ll now be gathering at OISE (University of Toronto’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education), at 252 Bloor St. West. This space is easily accessible by public transit: it’s right around the corner from the St. George subway station, which is a wheelchair-accessible station served by both central subway lines.

Many thanks to all the volunteers and presenters who donate their time, and to everyone who has taken part in the conversations at Queering Power. Your support, financial and otherwise, makes Harvest possible.

Want more? Here are the general details.

WHEN: April 1, 2017

WHERE: OISE (University of Toronto’s Ontario Institute for Studies in Education), at 252 Bloor St. West

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. So far each year some lovely locals have hosted a casual play party in the evening, but that’s never a guarantee.

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!
