"You're not too sensitive - it's a crazy world out there." This is the motto of Misery, a London-based community consisting of queer, trans and intersex people with experiences of addiction, trauma, disability, neurodivergence, addressing issues around mental health. In the context of Kampires Club & Care Residency Aaks and other members of Misery Party invite you to the Sober Day Rave in Stall 6 and in the hall of the Gessnerallee. Besides various workshops (DO IT YOURSELF - KINKY GEAR WORKSHOP for BIPOC, GENTLE HARMONY for BIPOC, INTRODUCTION TO VOGUE for BIPOC) there will be a tattoo booth, tarot readings, a SELF HELP COMMUNITY SHOP and a drag make-up session. But you can also just chill, eat and drink. From 6pm on there will be DJ sets in the hall, because of course there should be dancing at a Sober Day Rave.
The number of places for the workshops is limited, please register at email@example.com. The rule is: first come, first served. The event is free for BIPoC. All those who are not members of the community are welcome, but are asked to make a financial contribution (pay as you wish) at the door.
