Event Details

 

QUEEROPE BERLIN 2024 is a 5-day in-person conference for mostly shibari/kinbaku/Japanese-inspired bondage that is exclusively for LGBTQIA+ people and womên.

We welcome all roles (rigger/tops, model/bottoms, switches, etc.), all knowledge levels (beginner, intermediate, advanced), and all styles to this gathering that aims to bring practitioners who identify as part of the LGBTQIA+ community or as womên together to celebrate their love for rope and exchange knowledge and experiences. After our first in-person edition last year, we listened to your feedback, improved the concept, and reduced the number of participants to provide an even better learning environment.

The second batch of tickets will be released on May 15th, 2024, 12:00 pm CET (Berlin).

If you wish to pay installments, please use this coupon code to reduce the price to the first installment: QGXQYKQU. After purchase please contact us with your purchase receipt so we can discuss the rest of your installments.

Mandatory Covid-19 rules

We strongly encourage the wearing of FFP-2 masks but they are not mandatory.

It is obligatory to do a quick test every day before entering the conference space. We will provide these tests for you and have a dedicated area to do them in.

The indoor areas will be constantly aired and HEPA-14 filters will be running the entire time. We also have outdoor areas.

We will provide hand and surface disinfectant, please make ample use of it.

If you are sick or feel like you start to get ill, please do not come to the conference.

Accessibility

The space is on the ground floor in the backyard of another building. It has three steps to enter the building. There is also a ramp available. The door frames have been widened to all for access with wheelchairs. The space has no high thresholds. There is an accessible bathroom and shower available.

Many of the workshops will be on the floor on yoga mats but we also provide chairs and sofas for more comfortable seating. The chairs are sturdy and have no limiting armrests so they can be useful and comfortable for any body size.

We will provide one or more spaces to retreat to in case the conference becomes too overwhelming. A weighted blanket and noise-canceling headphones will be provided. The garden area will also be accessible at least in part (we are still building so this is not 100% clear yet).

 

Who is this event for?

LGBTQIA+ describes the full spectrum of non-mainstream sexual orientation and/or gender identity, meaning: lesbian, gay, bisexual, pansexual, transgender, non-binary, genderqueer/fluid, queer, intersex, asexual, aromantic, and agender.

Womên describes people who are identifying themselves as female in their gender identity. People that fit this category can be part of the LGBTQIA+ spectrum or not. We created this category specifically to indicate that we also invite cisgender, heterosexual womên.

The word is our own creation and serves as a replacement for the word “womxn” which is now being (ab)used for transmisogynist statements. The ^ in womên represents a marker (similar to the “x” in womxn) that wishes to give emphasis to the fact that womênhood is an intersectional umbrella term that holds many different people and experiences and is not biologically predetermined.
