· ABOUT ·
Hey Cuties! We’re hosting a soliparty to help raise money for the CutieBIPoC Berlin 2019 festival. There will be a sliding scale donation on the door – the festival will only take money from the donations as drinks revenue are taken by be’kech to help keep the space open; please be as generous as you are able to
This event is open to all that want stand on solidarity with QTIBIPoC, we look forward to hosting you and your lovely vibes ✨✨✨✨
*What is CutieBIPoC*:
As QTIBIPOC**, we often experience that certain aspects of our identities are separated. Within Queer spaces only our Queerness is in focus, in a way that erases our BIPoC experiences. The same happens in BIPoC communities, where our Queerness is not always acknowledged.
Therefore, this dedicated space is so important. We hope to create a space where our complex identities can flourish through community building.
We wish to strengthen the growing QTIBIPoC communities around Europe and outside of it by coming together, sharing resources and creating a space for people to address issues that affect us and our communities.
We will be offering workshops, screenings, performances, discussions, parties, food and spaces to just hang out

· ACCESSIBILITY ·
Unfortunately, be’kech is not wheelchair accessible* [due to the lack of planning permissions provided to the co-founders and activists organising out of this space] and as a result Cutie BIPoC organisers debated whether to use the space for this reason. In the end, we decided to do this as the money raised would allow us to make the festival more accessible, specifically hiring an accessible venue for the party which we have been struggling with.
However we apologies for the impact it has on those who are excluded as a result. Please reach out to us if you have any opinions, comments, concerns o r suggestions about this, especially if you have been excluded from this event because of that and want to raise it to the community in regards to future decisions.
* There are three steps entering the venue, and an additional eighteen steps to the basement floor where the bathrooms are located.
· BATHROOMS ·
By law as space serving food and drink, the toilets are unfortunately gendered – that withstanding, be’kech has a ZERO TOLERANCE policy on any gender-policing and both the organisers and the space totally reserve the right to request for the removal of anyone from the venue who does not respect this.
