Queer Rope Jam

A place for practice

Weekly queer rope jam with low-key, casual atmosphere in the SOMA neighborhood of SF with accompanying potluck. Suspension rig availability subject to change. Registration, waiver, and covid vaccination is necessary for attendance.

Description

Queer Rope Jam was started with the intent of creating a fun and casual space for both current and potential rope lovers in the queer community. We invite everyone of all skill levels within the queer community to join us at this low-key and friendly social meetup for open-tying among peers. We also have an accompanying potluck.

Please be aware that Queer Rope Jam is neither a class or a play party, rather a space for rope practice, experimentation within your ability, being inspired by the different skill levels and styles other folks can have and to create community, collaboration, and connections.

We welcome rope beginners and folks new to QRJ and ask that you arrive by 8:10 in time for Newcomers Circle to go over rules, safety, and negotiation; as well as, when necessary, a general instruction for a basic tie (ex.single column tie). Please know that doors close to both newcomers of the space and/or to rope at 8:10 to ensure that everyone at Queer Rope Jam is educated on the rules and safety of the space and to prevent interruption of Newcomers Circle. For folks that have BOTH previously attended Queer Rope Jam AND have worked with rope before, doors are open all night, are no longer required to attend Newcomers Circle and can begin free-tying right after Opening Circle and rules/introductions.

Recommended to bring: rope, safety shears, comfortable well fitting clothes to make tying easier, instructional books if you have any, snacks or drinks for the community potluck!

Please be aware that registration, a waiver, and proof of covid vaccination are necessary to join the event. House rope and shears are available with limited quantity.
