Munches are a tradition within kink community, a way to meet up with other kinksters in a friendly and low-pressure environment to share, learn, and connect with each other! Sunday, Sept 5 from 4 – 7pm, we invite queer, trans, and gender non-conforming kinksters of colour to join us for a picnic social in Parc LaFontaine. Some tea & snacks will be provided, but bring something to share if you can. There will be an icebreaker activity during the first hour of the event for those who want to participate, or drop in any time for casual conversation. Music! Snacks! Leather! Yay!
Dress up or dress down, whatever makes you feel comfortable and sexy for a Sunday afternoon 🙂 All ages (18+) and all levels of experience with kink are welcomed. We will post a map to the location within the park on the day of the event, and we will have purple streamers at our location to help you find us!
This event is organized by a group of BIPOC kinksters who have been involved in local and online leather communities for a number of years. Our goal is to build community, knowledge, and safety, and to create regular chances for kinky queer weirdos of colour to find each other! Feel free to write to us with any questions or ideas about the event at email@example.com.
Accessibility: The park is near the 29, 11, 14, 45, and 24 bus lines, and depending on the bus, the meetup spot will be a 5-20 minute walk away from the bus stop on packed dirt paths or through grass. The nearest metro is Sherbrooke, which is a 15 minute walk away from the park. We will try to choose a spot with a picnic bench in an area with shade from trees, and will bring sanitized camp chairs for additional seating. There are gendered washrooms in the pavilion in the middle of the park, we are not sure if these are accessible for folks using mobility devices and will update when we have more information.
COVID guidelines: This event is outdoors, and we will have disposable masks and hand sanitizer available for everyone. We encourage folks to sit with people in their bubbles and maintain distance and wear a mask when interacting with folks outside of their bubble. Most importantly, we ask that participants clearly state their boundaries and respect others’ boundaries: If someone asks you to back up or mask up, the appropriate response is not “don’t worry I’m vaccinated”. If anyone has concerns, we welcome feedback and suggestions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This event takes place on Tiotia:ke, the traditional territory of the Kanien’kehá:ka. It has historically been a meeting place for other Indigenous nations, including the Anishnaabe, Haudenosaunee, and Algonquin peoples. We are grateful to be able to live and gather on these lands and waters, and believe that as people who are interested in examining and playing with dynamics of power and control, it is crucial for us to be informed on the past and current violence of colonialism. We encourage everyone to learn about the history of these lands and to support Indigenous resistance here and across Turtle Island.
