boulders is wheelchair accessible, has gender neutral bathrooms, and is a sober space. Any Q’s? message Sarah Akawa (who has worked at and with Boulders for several years)

Why Climbing? – sarah has been climbing and hanging at gyms for years and has been recently hearing the call to take people climbing. climbing is a highly adaptable, fun, friendship bonding sport that people of all sizes, shapes, abilities can partake in. often gyms are scary, esp. for queer and trans and poc folks. lets band together and have a good time. also – Ian’s gave us pizza for free.

this event is open to and for:
queer identifying people, queer & trans* people of size, qt*poc

“I am straight & cis, can I come?” – the gym is “open” otherwise. but you may come hang with queer pressure if a queer person needs you to come as emotional or physical support. but we prefer for this event to be a closed, queer & trans* only event.
