Round illustration of a yellow tent in a forest, in the background is a rainbow. Above is text that says Queer Campout New Mexico.

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

This space is open to anyone who identifies as queer. So… who’s queer? Do you feel queer? We’re using “queer” here as an umbrella term encompassing non-heterosexual sexualities, as well as trans, nonbinary, and genderqueer folks. Frequently within public spaces, queers don’t feel safe. The goal of this camping trip is 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, queers without documentation, queers of different abilities, queers of all flavors. It’s okay if you don’t feel “queer enough.” If you identify as queer, 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 space that is consensual, anti-racism, anti-transphobia, anti-fatphobia, anti-body-shaming, and actively body positive. Let’s come together as the wildly & beautifully weird & wonderful community that we are, and co-create something supportive, empowering, consensual, and above all—fun!
