Pervers/Cité is pleased to present 2SLGBTQ+ Neurodivergent Games Hangout! This event takes place online (zoom link pending). Mark your calendars for September 7th at 6:30pm for this free games night!
This event is a social space for 2SLGBTQ+ neurodivergent folks to gather and play games. Games played will depend on the interest of those who attend. Please fill out this optional Google Forms to indicate what you’d like to play and if you have any access needs or comments 🙂 Available here:
Please note that this is a closed event for 2SLGBTQ+ neurodivergent folks. Neurodivergent is defined broadly and includes anyone within the neurological minority, including self-diagnosis and/or questioning. Anybody who identifies as neurodivergent and 2SLGBTQ+ is welcomed in this space.
– Accessibility is important to me as an organizer and I am currently looking for a volunteer who is willing to live caption this event. Please get in touch!
– If you require ASL or LSQ to fully participate, please let me know and I’ll do my best to find an interpreter.
– There is absolutely no pressure to speak aloud or have your camera on. Participate in any way that works for you.
– Be patient and understanding of other’s needs. Some folks may take longer to respond, for example folks who use Augmentative and Alternative Communication and/or have social anxiety, etc. Allow everyone attending enough time to type/speak.
– There will be a Zoom breakout room for folks who need a break.
– This is a sober event.
– Unfortunately, my French isn’t the best. If there is enough interest, I can try to recruit a Francophone co-host.
Please let me know if you have any other access needs.
*About The Organizer*
Zackary Derrick (they/them) is a white, settler queer nonbinary community organized based in so-called Montreal. They are neurodivergent in multiple ways and recently have been diagnosed as autistic. They are passionate about all things games, anti-oppression and accessibility.
Pervers/Cité is an anti-corportate queer and trans festival that relies on dedicated volunteers, grants, and fundraising to operate each year. If you appreciate the festival, please consider donating the 2021 edition. All funds are equally split between festival costs and honorariums for BIPOC volunteers and event organizers.
This event was organized on unceded Kanienʼkehá꞉ka lands in Tiohtià:ke, colonially known as so-called “Montreal”. These lands were violently stolen and continue to be so. The ongoing fight for Indigenous self-determination is inherently linked to the struggle for disability justice and neurodivergent inclusion. I am happy to provide more resources for folks to learn more about the interconnection of colonization and ableism. Please feel free to get in touch.
