Queers Without Borders: Action Meeting
Post-parade, pre-party. Create the Pride you want to see.
An informal meeting exploring injustice and violence against queer people in Iceland and discussing various ways how to draw attention to it. Bodily violence against intersex children, financial inaccessibility of HRT for many low-income people (especially youth), and deportations of queer asylum seekers are a few examples of such issues.
Come share your experiences and ideas. All radically-minded queers and non-queer accomplices are welcome.
The meeting is an independently-organised grassroots event, not backed up by any one collective, but rather a few individuals.
Accessibility of Andrými:
Andrými is currently not accessible to wheelchairs, and challenging to access for people who have difficulties going up steps. THE EVENT CAN BE MOVED ELSEWHERE if anyone would like to take part but cannot due to inaccessibility: please let us know on blue1211(at)riseup.net as soon as possible and we will find an alternative space.
There is a step before the garden gate and then 5 steps leading to the main entrance, each 17 cm high, door widths in the building vary between 50 cm (upstairs washroom door) and 80 cm (entrance door).
The washrooms are so far only on the upper floor and in the basement. The door to the meeting room is 75 cm wide (as most other doors in the building). The event takes place on the ground floor. There is no bathroom on the ground floor.
Both washrooms in the building are gender neutral. Name and pronoun tags will be available. The meeting takes place in English unless all participants feel comfortable using Icelandic.
