Join our queer hearts at a chill meet-and-greet event with a sampling of informational talks and experiential demos from queer wellness practitioners. Meet counselors, massage therapists, acupuncturists, creatives, and other queer practitioners, and learn more about their services; all in a queer-owned community space! Stay for the whole day, or pop in for the segments that interest you. Our schedule  for the day can be found below.

This years event will include resources for care, practitioner information, and small offerings that give you a chance to learn a bit more about how we show up in health and wellness for you.

In addition to all of this we encourage you to engage with us through a fun scavenger hunt that will invite curiosity with an opportunity to win avariety of prizes!


This event does not require monetary exchange; rather, curiosity and engagement with community. We are so excited to gather with community in this way and hope to see you at the event!
