The NW Network of Bisexual, Trans, Lesbian & Gay Survivors of Abuse

The Northwest Network increases our communities' ability to support the self-determination and safety of bisexual, trans, lesbian, and gay survivors of abuse through education, organizing, and advocacy.

We provide support and advocacy for LBGT folks of all genders who are surviving intimate/partner and dating violence. We are leather and kink friendly.

THe EpiC SummEr QTPoC Retreat

AUGUST 20th-22nd, 2010


(on the peninsula) address will be given upon registration

We would love for you to join us for a cooperative rejuvenating and healing weekend. We are pooling our skills and resources to create a time and space for us to recharge.

Our vision includes YOU, your beautiful bodies, brains, and your participation in this lovely weekend extravaganza.

The Deets

Our goal is to be able to provide full and nutritious meals that are nourishing and delicious for the entire weekend. We’ll try to provide organic veggies, gluten-free and dairy-free options. We are outreaching to several local farms and collecting donations. We are also putting a call out for donations from your garden as well as anything else you may be able to contribute. We would especially love your help with teas, honey, agave, and some of the more expensive condiments.

Reiki, guided meditation, yoga, Tarot readings, sound healing, good food, beautiful company, idyllic scenery, jam sessions (bring your musical instruments!), AND whatever else you want to offer that is healing to you. One-on-one healing sessions and group classes will be offered as well as some learn-with-us workshops.

There are 3 Beds, plenty of floor space, and camping space available. We will be providing childcare and organizing rideshares to get people there. There is space for approximately 18 people. Accommodations will be given out on a first-come first-serve basis with ultimate priority given based on ability. We expect that many people will not be able to participate in the whole weekend but please don’t let that stop you from coming. Just let us know what you need and together we can find the best solutions for any situation.

Our intention has been to support each other in taking good care and being well. So please bring yourself, your skills and whatever financial support you can to realize this vision. We are serious about the power of collective healing through learning and experience in community. AND having a goodass time!!!

Please reflect on your resources, time, energy when considering how much to contribute for three days of fabulousness, healing, and skill sharing. Contributions can be: foods, money, skills, energy, conversation, and love. To offset some costs, we’re asking for a donation of $0-30 for the weekend. No one will be turned away for lack of funds. So please bring yourself your skills and whatever financial support you can to realize this vision.

RSVP to Christine Guiao at, then go and fill out the Doodle survey: And please indicate any dietary restrictions.
