Considering the nature of the venue, a bar which holds multiple events, we are sorry to say we are unable to offer a scent-reduced space.
THE BUDDY SYSTEM:
The Buddy System is a grassroots effort to combat rape culture and enhance the safety of our queer events. CONSENT IS SEXY -- AND MANDATORY! Oppressive attitudes and behaviour -- including but not limited to misogyny, transphobia, racism, fatphobia, and ableism -- are not welcome here. The Buddy System will be in effect at Queers & Beers: Pride Edition. Buddies will be wearing **NEON T-SHIRTS**. Our Buddies are NARCAN trained, and are carrying sealed water bottles, penis/vagina condoms, lube, granola bars, tampons, and more. They will run interference if someone is receiving unwanted attention, can help someone find a way home and generally serve as go-to support people should any problems arise.
Queers & Beers is an event is being held on unceded Indigenous land belonging to the Coast Salish peoples. This includes the territories of the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh-ulh, Stó:lo & Tsleil-Waututh nations. In recognition of this, and of the historical and ongoing genocide against the Indigenous Peoples of this land, we (settlers/occupiers) will be donating a portion of profits from each event to Indigenous Self-Determination work. For this event, we'll be donating to Kwi Awt Stelmexw Language Reconciliation Fund: https://www.kwiawtstelmexw.com/campaign/language-fund/
