*** This event is part of the Noon Festival · Queer History Month x Ramadan · be‘kech ***
Hosted by YOU
SAT, May 25th, 2019
Start: 19:30 h
Join us for an evening of relaxed, friendly conversation at a pace that’s slower than usual. Drink a glass of wine or a cup of tea and chat about all things queer and glorious!
· CONCEPT ·
Three large tables placed upstairs at be’kech, with each representing a different theme/topic of conversation: music, love, goals – a focus on the positive contributions and experiences of our communities. Guests choose to start at the table of their choice – each with a queer facilitator present – and spend about 30-45 minutes having wonderful discussions before moving to the next table.
Get tired of group conversations and want to have a one on one chat? No problem, there’s plenty of space downstairs to do so!
