Virtual Queerantine

May 12, 2020—Vancouver, BC: It can be socially isolating to be Indigenous and queer, and in the time of COVID-19 these feelings of isolation can be compounded. This series was developed with the support of the Tegan and Sara Foundation to provide a venue for connection. Join us online!

 

8 SESSIONS:
May 20th, 27th, June 3rd, 10th, 17th, 24th, 30th, and July 7th
7:00 – 8:30 PM PST on Zoom

This series is geared to Indigenous youth who identify as 2SLGBTQQIPAA+ and their allies between the ages of 14 and 30. Our events are inclusive of non-binary participants.

• Meet new friends and connect online with others
• Have fun and feel uplifted during this socially isolating time
• Learn tools to navigate your coming out journey
• Strengthen our resilience against prejudice and discrimination

We hope that you will be able to attend all 8 sessions as the goal is to strengthen connection and build community during this isolating time of COVID. However, we also know that may not be possible for everyone.

MAY 20 On being Indigiqueer: A coming out story.
(Allan Thomas Lindley and Kim Haxton)

MAY 27 Green time instead of screen time: Ground yourself through land reconnection. With our usual distractions disappearing in the time of COVID hibernation, many of us are finding that hunger for the land more and more demanding.
(Shane Sable and Kim Haxton)

JUNE 3 Hearts and Parts, Part 1: Let’s talk about sex, baby! Shadow puppet storytelling about identity, consent, healthy sexual expression and the spectrum of being human.
(Allan Thomas Lindley and Hazel Bell-Koski)

JUNE 10 Hearts and Parts, Part 2
(Allan Thomas Lindley and Hazel Bell-Koski)

JUNE 17 Indigenous Futurism: Storytelling, decolonizing, and imagination.
(Allan Thomas Lindley and Kim Haxton)

JUNE 24 Connecting Through Song: We welcome everyone to join us on a journey of connecting to each other through sounds and songs to lift our hearts, spirit and mind. All levels of participation welcome. Your presence alone is a gift. Look forward to sharing space with you <3
(Desirée Dawson and Jody Mariko Okabe)

JUNE 30 Oracle Card Making: Oracle cards are a divination tool that can help us explore our dreams and give us direction, through deep or simple day to day questions. In this session we will activate our creativity and lean into our queerness as a place of power and deep knowing. No experience necessary.
(Hazel Bell-Koski)

JULY 7 Closing Circle: We want to hear your feedback!
(Kim Haxton)
