Event Details

Welcome to Queerope 2023! This year we are bringing back the warm-up sessions to ease into the conference but also take really good care of our bodies, energy, and mental health. For most sessions – like this one – Caritia will be your gentle guide.

This session will help you orientate yourself and also get to know the other participants. We will talk about hopes and expectations, how to navigate the massive amount of input, and find you a conference buddy. If you ask us, this might be THE most important warm-up session to attend!



Format: warm-up session

Minimum Knowledge Level:

What to Bring: yourself

Solo or Partnered: any constellation

Class recording: yes

This class will be recorded (only the facilitator, not the participants) and is available for ticket holders for 30 days after the event.




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.

Mamana (they/them)

Mamana (they/them) is an artist and academic currently working with and exploring the body not only as a physical entity but also as a means to create and subvert meaning beyond the standard concepts of identity and restrictive societal norms of what bodies should look and be like, what they are allowed to do and what no.

They curate spaces from an intersectional, trauma-sensitive, and no-bullshit perspective, aiming to always include the bigger picture into the personal struggles, thoughts, and ideas.
