The rain can’t stop us (and neither can the mud). Here’s our hay solution to get the golf cart down the path.

Are you thinking to yourself, "Wow, the Twin Oaks Queer Gathering 2018 sounds fun, but I don't know if my identity counts...am I queer enough?" Spoiler Alert: YAASSS!!!

Sorry if we’ve been less than communicative in the past few days, a virus has necessitated shutting down our networks at Twin Oaks. But our wonderful organizer Ro is also the community’s IT person, and has been on the case. They’re working to restore our beloved WiFi right now. . . . #countryqueers #countryproblems #twinoakscommunity #communelife #intentionalcommunity #intentionalliving #queergatheringtwinoaks #queergathering

Meet the organizers! Ro was spawned in Arizona and has drifted around the country until stopping hopefully-permanently at Twin Oaks. They are a techie type who likes fast internet and hates streaming videos! You’ll find them hula hooping, dancing, and playing board games at the gathering.

This morning the Queer Gathering organizers did a walkthrough of the conference site. Here’s one of the huge mylar panels in the Pavillion. . . . #queergatheringtwinoaks #queergathering #conferenceprep #countryqueers #intentionalcommunity #intentionalliving

Meet an organizer of the Twin Oaks Queer Gathering! Ari currently lives in Charlottesville but is returning to live at Twin Oaks again soon. At the queer gathering you can often find them at the friendship-bracelet-making table. On a regular day at Twin Oaks you can often find them in the garden. They like comics, letter writing, spinning, felt making, stories in all media (especially when there are queer characters!) and cooking spicy food.

Reminder to keep our queer activism intersectional. QTPOC have born the heaviest burdens of our movement, but are the first to be thrown under the bus. Happy #pride to those of us who still live in fear.

Who is organizing the Queer Gathering? Born and raised in Canada, Valerie has lived over half her life at Twin Oaks. The lifework that nourishes her most is being a Yoga Instructor (current favourite pose: Half-Bow / Ardha Dhanurasana). Being a Virgo, she can’t help organizing things, and in addition to helping create the Queer Gathering, she manages Twin Oaks’ firewood-splitting crew and hammock pillow-making workshop. One of her Ease Mantras: “How can I be with the experience that is happening right now with kindness and acceptance towards myself?" Look forward to seeing her in Twin Oaks from August 3-5!

Meet the organizers! Julia (@cynical.elle.woods) is (finally) a new member at Twin Oaks. A former women's gathering intern, she is now an organizer for the women's gathering and the communities conference as well as the queer gathering. She enjoys fire spinning, foraging, fiber arts, and intersectional feminist theory.
