Event Details

When we were young, we were frequently instructed not to play with sharp things. But now, as adults, we get to play around.  There is a lot of fun to be had from exploring what our body’s capacity is. It may also be an opportunity to release and let go of things no longer needed or feared.

Caritia will take participants through the steps to exploring their own body or the body of another person in a thoughtful, safe(r), and practical way when exploring and playing with needles. This workshop will include actual practice (for you to watch or follow along), as well as a discussion and Q & A. The aim of this workshop and discussion is to inform participants about how to create a safe(r) environment to play with this edge practice of needles from an informed perspective.

NOTE: The needle in the event picture is NOT the kind of needle to use. We chose this picture as there are lots of people with needle phobia and this particular pic in non-triggering.

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, agender.

Friends describes people of any and all kinds of gender and sexual identities who are aware and respectful of the necessity, needs, and boundaries of a queer safe(r) space and its marginalized community.

When you consider yourself a friend you show acknowledgment to and are respectful of everyone’s self-expression and do not assume, presume or project non-consensual ideas onto others. You actively request and use people’s chosen pronouns. You remain mindful of the fact that Karada House is first and foremost a space for queer people that you are also invited to attend. You have a genuine concern for the well-being of LGBTQIA+ people and remain in awareness of heterosexual and gender straight privileges.

Friends don’t have to be perfect. None of us are. We request that we all pro-actively work and strive to be good friends and allies to marginalized people.

If you cannot afford the ticket price (even the solidarity price), please send us a message. We will find a way.

About Caritia: lives as an LGBTQAI+, gender-fluid, BiPoC (assigned female at birth) individual. Walking a path with invisible disabilities and the living challenges which accompany that life. Educator, creative and ongoing work in process, whose advocacy for establishing boundaries is as strong as the desire to love with truth and honesty. On a quiet mission to destigmatise difference and return power to each individual. Using the language of kink to the point of geeky excitement. Caritia’s fascination with the root/the body stems from a longing too deeply ‘listen’ to (her) body holistically, from the inside out.
