How do we queer space? What is queer space, and what does queer space mean to you?

In this workshop, participants are invited to create a personal map of queer experience, marking moments of and/or locating queerness in space (physical or otherwise).

The purpose of this workshop is for participants to explore their own personal conceptualizations of queer space, and how these can be used to understand (and imagine new) community connections, navigate desire, and celebrate personal histories.

Participants in this workshop are invited to:

· Start the process of mapping their queer community, developing a map of queer space and exploring what that means to them

· Consider how their queer map relates to broader (queer) communities and to share their maps with other participants

· Imagine ways of relating to one another and to queer space

· Give feedback on programming and suggestions for other programming they would like to see from LPIRG and our community affiliates.

Participants in this workshop will work on developing their own queer map. The intention behind this is to facilitate participants’ reimagining of queer space as intimate, highly personal, and ever changing; and to see mapping as an exploratory tool and process that can aid in developing alternate queer understandings.
