bibimbatty is a fabulous Copenhagen-based collective of, for and by Queer, Trans, Intersex, Black/Indigenous/People of Colour (CutieBIPoCs).
it is possible and unfortunately likely for anti-blackness to exist in people of colour spaces, so if you’re non-black, hold yourself and your friends accountable.
keep this a safer space. if someone is being violent in any way, they will be asked to leave. this is a space for vulnerability and pleasure, it is not to be exploited. not all womxn are femmes, not all femmes are womxn.
do not fetishize this event/space or anyone in it. do not ask ANYONE where they are “from”, do not become violent if and when you get checked. we are not here for it. you are visiting this space, be humble; this is not a safari.
if you are a man, step back. make space. masculinity comes in many different forms. do not seek to own/control/violate/take from others to make yourself feel important.
if someone is not OPENLY excited to be interacting with/talking with you (this includes ANY form of touch), know they do not want to. DO NOT try to make anyone touch you (or be touched by you), speak to you or respond to you.
be open to new language, make space for the potential for you to be wrong. we all make mistakes, but we have to practice owning and learning from them.
reflect upon your own position, and the space you’re taking. consider checking in with other people in the similar positions, if you see them enact in fuckery.
do not consume other people’s cultures for your aesthetic and social capital. do not shame people of colour, then make a trend out of their lives.
we are sharing space with people from all kinds of different economic backgrounds and histories. be honest about what you can give so that everyone can have access.
this is a productive space for us to feel unpoliced and loved. at non-separatist events, the work is put on non-qtibipoc folks to learn how to hold space with us. we remind each other and ourselves that queerness is not about capitalist ideas of progression and achievement.
because we are committed to our own qti-bipoc community, we prioritise their well-being. we believe in calling-in and accountability.
instead find someone from the safety team who will be wearing visible pink bands.
these community guidelines were inspired by the yellow jackets collective in new york city as well as activism from local communities in copenhagen.
