Three cheers for a big bus full of the coolest folks, cruising around town, stopping at LGBTTIQQ2SAP spaces and sharing and caring. Plus one more cheer for using such an awesome acronym. Plus another cheer for the folks at Creating Connections for making this Queerposium event happen. It’s a suggested fare of $25, and a promise that no one will be turned away because of cost. It’s a great way to spend a Saturday.
At 10 a.m. on November 24th, our adventurous passengers will board a big accessible school bus for a daylong event of engagement, discussion and involvement in queer community. ‘Bussed Out’ will proudly travel the city in full regalia stopping at LGBTTIQQ2SAP spaces, services, and organizations all over Victoria. At each stop participants will be oriented to the space and then a workshop, discussion presentation or spontaneous event will take place.
Throughout the day, both on and off the bus, the activities will invite us to consider our thoughts, feelings and perspectives about being queer and how we relate to the larger community. We will explore themes of diversity and inclusion, apathy and barriers toward building queer community. The Bus Stops include; basements and bathrooms, forests and fountains, lunch rooms and classrooms, and more!!
