Queer Campout New Mexico exists to be an inclusive space for queers of all descriptions who want to go camping in the woods together in New Mexico.

Happy queers camping!

This space is open to anyone who identifies as queer. So… who’s queer? We’re using “queer” as an umbrella term encompassing non-heterosexual sexualities and trans, nonbinary, and genderqueer folks.

Frequently within public spaces, queers don’t feel safe. This camping event aims to create space in our community that centralizes the safety and comfort of queers. That means fat queers, skinny queers, femme queers, butch queers, trans queers, queers of color, agender queers, genderfluid queers, mad queers, queers without documentation, disabled queers, queers of all flavors.

At Queer Campout, queerness is radical and political; it reclaims who we are in every way, shape, and form. Our queerness actively resists oppressive systems and appropriation.

It’s okay if you don’t feel “queer enough.” If you identify as queer and align with our values, you belong here. And, of course, if you’re inviting someone, you’re vouching that they’re a safe person for this environment.

This is a co-creative space where it’s cool to take care of each other, be kind, be friendly, and have fun! It’s a consensual space, committed to anti-racism, anti-transphobia, anti-fatphobia, anti-body-shaming, and actively body positive.

Let’s come together as the wildly and beautifully weird, wonderful community that we are and co-create something supportive, empowering, consensual, and, above all, fun!
