Accessibility note:
Babylon Nightclub is an accessible venue. The washrooms are located on the main floor and are accessible as well (Not easy to navigate with motorized Wheelchair). There is a small lip (approximately 1” ) at the front entrance and we will have access to a ramp if needed.

The washrooms at this event will be gender neutral in recognition that so often gender variant, trans, two spirit and women identified people are at greater risk to violence and harassment. The QM hopes to create safer spaces for folks to be who they are and to enjoy their night free from violence and body policing. This includes making a commitment to providing gender-neutral washrooms.

Safer Space Policy:
QM collectively strives to create spaces that are free of as many barriers as possible as means to working towards liberation. This means that we are all responsible for creating the spaces we desire, by educating ourselves, each other and ensuring that we are continually engaging in these conversations and creating relationships of support and collective responsibility. While we recognize that no space is exclusively “safe” for anyone, we must collectively work towards mitigating harms. In response to certain experiences that have happened within our spaces, we have decided to remix ground rules to apply to a specific situation in which groups of people come together to make themselves vulnerable: http://thequeermafia.com/events/safer-spaces-policy/

QM works towards recognizing dynamics of power and privilege that exist within society and which have historically oppressed our communities. We believe that these same dynamics and tensions exist within our own communities and we are working continuously towards addressing these tensions and creating supportive spaces. People participating in our events and dance parties are asked to be aware of their language and behaviour and to think about whether these may be harming others. Our spaces are not spaces for explicit or implicit violence, racism, sexism, ageism, transphobia, cissexism, sizeism, fatphobia, sexual harassment, and gender policing, or doing anything to another person without their consent. Acting in a way that disrespects, harms others or undermines these values will not be tolerated. QM reserves the right to assess & manage circumstances and situations in the best interest of our collective vision towards creating ‘liberation’ and ‘safer’ spaces.
