Organizing Queer Nightlife for Solidarity Forum

ROOM 3 // Roter Raum

by QNIS Queer Nightlife initiative for Solidarity

De, Fr, En

QNIS invites to a moderated discussion forum about how queer nightlife facilitators can join forces to fight back commercialization, gentrification, and other forms of domination.

This will be a space to collectively decide on issues we want to start collaborating on and what structures we need to in place to do so.

Let us combine our power and reach to make the changes each of us can not achieve on their own. Because we dance together and we stand together!


List of common concerns:

- closing of clubs / A100

- rising rents and cost of living crisis (DWE)

- accessibility in nightlife

- salaries & working conditions of club workers and artist fees

- living off being a promoter and nightlife facilitator

- supporting intersectional political groups & movements

- connecting events and parties to political initiatives
