Happy New Year! Happy Holidays!

Burning Man announced the 2017 theme as “RADICAL RITUAL” and it could be very exciting. There are so many directions that this can go to celebrate and revel in our Burner Community at large  as much as our Queer sector of the city. Radical Ritual is not necessarily a religious thing, it could be a mating ritual, a rites of passage (wait, they did that one), a giant quinceanera, a bar mitzvah, and so many more celebrations and ceremonies and beginnings and endings.

Queer Burners

Queer Burners is a community driven platform for LGBT Burning Man participants to network and connect anywhere in the world. The sole purpose is to help generate a safe place for people to network and build relationships that people can feel safe with. Web Site / Twitter @queer_burners / Facebook

Facebook Group v. Page

So why if there a Queer Burners Facebook PAGE …AND a Queer Burners Facebook GROUP? It might seem a bit confusing to most people and it has been asked a few times.

Once upon a time it was Facebook Page – Gay Burners but we changed it to Queer Burners in 2011’ish to be more inclusive. Then the GROUP was created initially to enhance the network and started with Queer Burners as social stream for the community and when we went back to change it Facebook said … “no”.

One of these days it will all be perfect. Facebook tools change all the time. So do their rules.

What’s Happening:

There is very little for outside the bay area on our mail list. Sorry about that, but please keep us posted with regional bad-ass things happening. We try and check regional pages to make sure we stay up on the what-what…

A little more business:

12/2 Queer Burners News Letter

Queer Burners is first about creating and fostering community and safe space for LGBTQAI+ people and our allies. We have a handful of leaders in the community that have united to help unite us all, while also fostering their individual group missions as well. Get engaged, be a part of making community a part of your life, at any level. This holiday season, step out of your bubble and do something extra for someone else completely selflessly.

All Of Us Event 2017

We have a whole production team working very hard on this event already. It is the third year for the Queer Burner Retreat now branded as the “All Of Us” Event. In our next news letter there will be some seriously HUGE news so stay tuned. Check out the Facebook Group to get announcements. Yes, we have kept it pretty quiet for now, but that is about to change. We have Instagram and Twitter accounts for this event. Social Media #allofusevent2017

Happy Holidays Everyone!

We are blessed to be able to do what we do in our lives and that many of us get to experience such love and support so generously. All those FREE HUGS signs and dusty smiles mean so much. This year a lot of people have been attacked with cancer, depression, and many other medical and life issues that drain the soul. All we can do is try and be present by listening, by delivering when we can, and by being supportive to make sure we know these loved ones are not alone. Some shed tears outside, some shed them inside, but seen or unseen they are vanquished often with one of those precious hugs or acknowledgements. Love & Light to you all.
