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 ([[User:Mattcen+lca2016@gmail.com|Matt]]) 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 we know vaguely how many to expect.
  
Mini conferences will run on the Monday and Tuesday of LCA 2016. The call for papers for these are handled individually by the organisers of each conference.  
+
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.
  
Here's a list of the open CFPs, with close dates and links. If you are attending LCA and have a ticket, why not throw in a proposal? [https://linux.conf.au/register/info You can also buy a single miniconf ticket].  
+
'''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.

Although I ([[User:Dhawke@oss.co.nz|Dan]]) 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 ([[User:Dhawke@oss.co.nz|Dan]]) 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.

Please be encouraged to ask people what their preferred pronouns are.  Someone appearing femme might not identify with "she/her", and someone appearing masculine might not identify with "he/him".  It's okay to make mistakes, but given this is a safe space, help others feel safe by being inclusive in your language.

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 (Matt) 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 we 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

See maps for location. (Feel free to replace with open street map link if you want)

Attendees

Safe Space

Although I (Dan) 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 (Dan) 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.

Pronouns

Please be encouraged to ask people what their preferred pronouns are. Someone appearing femme might not identify with "she/her", and someone appearing masculine might not identify with "he/him". It's okay to make mistakes, but given this is a safe space, help others feel safe by being inclusive in your language.

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.

Feel free to get in touch with either Matthew or Dan with any questions.
