We’re Here…We’re Queer…& We Climb!
About the Club:
Twice monthly, we’ll be hosting a meet-up for the climber gays of our community. Trans or cis, fifteen or fifty, pan or asexual, etc. You will be safe & welcome in our inclusive space. We strive to foster an environment of respect, safety, diversity and community building while meeting/having a blast with like-minded folx! All levels of climbing experience are welcome, from first timers to well-seasoned trad daddis. We have a zero tolerance policy against any and all discrimination such as transphobia, biphobia, racism, sexism, ageism, ableism, xenophobia, and (obviously) homophobia. No TERFs & no SWERFs, period.
Don’t know what a SWERF or a TERF is? Check out the info below.
