This is likely to be scheduled for one of the slots on Tuesday.

This BoF is for any folk who identify as Queer, LGBT, polyamorous/non-monogamous etc., or any allies or friendly, interested people. Let's catch up for lunch somewhere. I ([https://www.twitter.com/mattcen @mattcen]) haven't got a venue in mind yet, but figure setting a meeting time is a good start!
  
Please submit your keys through the [https://keysigning.xyz/ following website] before Monday 1/2/2016

If you feel comfortable doing so, please drop your name and perhaps a way to contact you down below so I know vaguely how many to expect.
  
I will try and have printed copies of the keys on the day but it would be useful to know how many copies to have printed.

Last year in Auckland this BoF was a purely social gathering, and this worked well, so I intend to run it in a similar fashion this time.  Considering our beachfront location, this will include a mix of self-catered beach lunches (Bring sunscreen! Weather-dependent.) and nearby cafe visits, and if interest is there, some evening bar/restaurant visits.  For those that didn't attend last year, this is a great way to make friends - around 30 people attended last year. I'm still in touch with several of the people I met on this BoF over the last few years, so I would highly recommend coming along.
If you could send an email to [[User:Dns@dns.id.au|Daniel Sobey]] to give a rough idea on numbers.

=== When is it? ===
+
'''Volunteer requested:''' I'm hoping a local (or at least someone with prior visits to the area) can assist us in selecting suitable nearby cafes/bars that we could take the group.
Currently planning on running this on Tuesday night first slot. Keep an eye on [[Birds_of_a_Feather_sessions_(BoFs)]] for times.

=== Things you need to before you leave for the conference. ===
+
=== Scheduled Events ===
* Create a gpg key!
+
* Monday Lunchtime - first meet and lunch. 12.20pm - Location TBA.
* Submit it to https://keysigning.xyz before the due date of Monday night
+
* Bring good quality photo id.
+
** Good quality means passport, drivers licence, proof of age card
+
** bad quality is library card etc.
+
** There is no "rule" as to what is acceptable quality - it is up to each individual signer to determine what is "good enough" photo ID, how closely the names should match the UID(s) on the key, etc.
+
* print out your fingerprint (not just the last 8 digits) so you can confirm that it is what you submitted
+
* Have extra copies of your fingerprint to hand out, print it on your business card if you have one.
+
  
=== At the event ===
+
== Attendees ==
Everyone will stand up the front show their photo id and read out their fingerprint.
+
This is to assert two things:
+
* The person matches the photo id
+
* The key submitted is the key they actually own.
+
* There should hopefully be printed copies of fingerprints. Cross off numbers in the fingerprint as they are read out if they match to be signed later.
+
  
=== After the event ===
+
* Matthew Cengia ([https://www.twitter.com/mattcen @mattcen])
Sign the keys when you get home, no need to do it during the conference.
+
* [[User:Dhawke@oss.co.nz|Dan Hawke]]
[https://wiki.debian.org/caff caff] is a useful tool to sign and email.
+
  
 +
=== Safe Space ===
 +
Although I have never known of any issues in previous years, prevention is always better than cure.  We welcome people whether or not they identify with the "Queer" tagline, including our straight allies.  Please remember, you may encounter people in minority groups that you do not identify with, so be polite, and treat everybody with respect.  I will identify myself to the group at the beginning of each meet, and you are at any time welcome to speak to me if you are feeling uncomfortable, or if there is anything happening that you do not believe is keeping with the idea of a Safe Space.  Feel free to ask me to step outside or send me an SMS if you do not wish to bring something up in front of the group.
  
=== Things to remember ===
+
Also keep in mind that not everybody in the group may wish for their identification to be published widely, so please ask permission before taking photos, tagging people on social media, or including names in articles or blog posts.
* The organizer could be evil, don't trust him, he has a beard.
+
 
* sign only the keys you have verified to your own standard, trust no one.
+
=== More Information ===
* don't trust the printouts, they could have been modified to mess with you and they could all be different.
+
Queer is a reclaimed word used as an umbrella term to describe our rainbow family identities that includes Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Takatapui, Fa’afafine, Fakaleiti, Pansexual, Asexual and Gender Queer.
* don't trust all the keys, there may be a fake key with the same email address as someone else to see who is paying attention.
+
* And remember [[http://xkcd.com/364/ Responsible Behavior]]

Queer BoF

This BoF is for any folk who identify as Queer, LGBT, polyamorous/non-monogamous etc., or any allies or friendly, interested people. Let's catch up for lunch somewhere. I (@mattcen) haven't got a venue in mind yet, but figure setting a meeting time is a good start!

If you feel comfortable doing so, please drop your name and perhaps a way to contact you down below so I know vaguely how many to expect.

Last year in Auckland this BoF was a purely social gathering, and this worked well, so I intend to run it in a similar fashion this time. Considering our beachfront location, this will include a mix of self-catered beach lunches (Bring sunscreen! Weather-dependent.) and nearby cafe visits, and if interest is there, some evening bar/restaurant visits. For those that didn't attend last year, this is a great way to make friends - around 30 people attended last year. I'm still in touch with several of the people I met on this BoF over the last few years, so I would highly recommend coming along.

Volunteer requested: I'm hoping a local (or at least someone with prior visits to the area) can assist us in selecting suitable nearby cafes/bars that we could take the group.

Scheduled Events

  • Monday Lunchtime - first meet and lunch. 12.20pm - Location TBA.

Safe Space

Although I have never known of any issues in previous years, prevention is always better than cure. We welcome people whether or not they identify with the "Queer" tagline, including our straight allies. Please remember, you may encounter people in minority groups that you do not identify with, so be polite, and treat everybody with respect. I will identify myself to the group at the beginning of each meet, and you are at any time welcome to speak to me if you are feeling uncomfortable, or if there is anything happening that you do not believe is keeping with the idea of a Safe Space. Feel free to ask me to step outside or send me an SMS if you do not wish to bring something up in front of the group.

Also keep in mind that not everybody in the group may wish for their identification to be published widely, so please ask permission before taking photos, tagging people on social media, or including names in articles or blog posts.

More Information

Queer is a reclaimed word used as an umbrella term to describe our rainbow family identities that includes Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual, Transgender, Intersex, Takatapui, Fa’afafine, Fakaleiti, Pansexual, Asexual and Gender Queer.
