Greeters Station

Queer Burners was started in 2008 in an effort to create a network for LGBTQ Burning Man participants to network with each other when not at Burning Man. It is also a good way for other LGBTQ people looking to participate to get more involved with other groups that already are out there creating and innovating a life-style that is naturally attractive to queer people to our own.

Burning Man’s 10 Principle are really the foundation of for all things in and around the community irregardless of sexual orientation or identity. The wording of these tenants speak to marginalized people most directly because they are probably everything we wanted from society that we have not had. Being out and proud is not a luxury we all have.

The web site is for the community. Queer Burners has no authority over the Gayborhood nor is it an officially sanctioned channel of communication or organization by Burning Man, LLC, Burning Man Project, or any other official channel. This is a grass roots project guided by camp leaders and a project admin with help from some amazing people. All of whom can be reached via the contact form.

Our Mission is developing Community & Leadership through participation. Make your next stop our additional resources pager here: Queerdos & Burning Man.
