Accessibility Note:
This is not an accessible venue as it will be on the back patio which is a historical cobblestone courtyard. The cobblestone is uneven and could be difficult to physically access for people using mobility aids and wheelchairs.. There is a small part of the courtyard that has a small stage but other aspects of the patio are level with the rest of the courtyard. The washrooms of SOCIAL are located down a flight of stairs.

Queering613 continue's to strive to find accessible venues in our city / advocate for more accessible spaces (physically, emotionally, financially, etc.)

This is a Liberation Space:

o We build community, we amplify & we pushback
o We are working towards inclusivity
o We are working towards being critical & self reflexive
o We are working towards self-determination & not just safety
o We work to deconstruct systems of oppression & violence
o We support people's choices & recognize these choices in
contexts of constraint

Queering613 collectively strives to create spaces that are free of as many barriers as possible as means to working towards liberation. This means that we are all responsible for creating the spaces we desire, by educating ourselves, each other and ensuring that we are continually engaging in these conversations and creating relationships of support and collective responsibility. While we recognize that no space is exclusively “safe” for anyone, we must collectively work towards mitigating harms. In response to certain experiences that have happened within our spaces, we have decided to remix ground rules to apply to a specific situation in which groups of people come together to make t

Queering613 works towards recognizing dynamics of power and privilege that exist within society and which have historically oppressed our communities. We believe that these same dynamics and tensions exist within our own communities and we are working continuously towards addressing these tensions and creating supportive spaces. People participating in our events and dance parties are asked to be aware of their language and behaviour and to think about whether these may be harming others. Our spaces are not spaces for explicit or implicit violence, racism, sexism, ageism, transphobia, cissexism, sizeism, fatphobia, sexual harassment, and gender policing, or doing anything to another person without their consent. Acting in a way that disrespects, harms others or undermines these values will not be tolerated.

Queering613 reserves the right to assess & manage circumstances and situations in the best interest of our collective vision towards creating ‘liberation’ spaces.
