Safer Space & Politics of Party: (from BENT’s Facebook–also applies here)
This is a queer and queer-admirers party. We are anti-racist, body-positive, sex positive, queer-as fuck freaky radicals who strive to create an environment of respect, celebration, and fun in our parties.
Therefore, disrespectful, belligerent, heterosexist, misogynist, transphobic, abelist, fat phobic, racist, and/or violent behavior is not welcome and those who exhibit it will be asked to leave immediately..
The Rosehip Medic Collective is a majority queer collective of street medics and health educators & activists in Portland. Funds from this party will help send 8 medics East to offer free medical support to protesters of the Democratic and Republican National Conventions in Charlotte (NC) and Tampa (FL). Currently the Rosehips are in a timecrunch to raise $2000 on Indiegogo by July 24th.
If you or your friends are able, please make a donation at http://igg.me/p/120623 now! Read up and share the Indiegogo with your networks! Visit http:/www.rosehipmedics.org/ to learn more about the group.
