Thurs: Neuroqueer Support Online Group // Sat: 5/2- Cactus Bloom IG Livestream Benefit show for the Hub! // & More!

-Thursday, April 23rd, 7:30-9:30pm:  Neuroqueer Support Online Group

The  loosely held theme of this week is "Gifts" but you can still talk about whatever. Thursday 4/23- 7:30-9:30

2nd and 4th Thursdays at 7:30- 4/23, 5/7 and ongoing!

We are neuroqueer, neurodivergent and neuroemergent. We have nervous systems which challenge the norms of psychiatry, ability and social expectations. Many of us have been deeply pathologized from a young age. Many of us have had difficulty recognizing the validity of who we are, difficulty perceiving and developing our abilities, our gifts, in the climate of pathologization we've been steeped in. But we have the chance to form new circles of validation, to immerse ourselves in affirming spaces, to be "believing mirrors" for each other. And some of us have learned ways to embrace who we are and would love to share about it! Life can be difficult or just different for us so let's talk about it! (or draw, stim, sign, sing, dance about it).

If that' s what you' ve been dreaming of, please join this co- facilitated circle.

This is a non-structured sharing space with revolving facilitators. We may decide to focus on a specific discussion topic or not. Non- verbal means of communication and sharing or just being will be welcomed.

This will be an anti- oppression focused space.*

This will be a queer space, (for ppl with LQBTQIA+ identities,yes, including Ace) with a possibility of opening up to others later once queer safety has been established to our satisfaction. Respecting various gender identities and pronouns is a must.

Who this space is for: queer people of all kinds of neurodivergence, including but not limited to adhd, bipolar, autistic, spd, hsp, bpd and so many more, regardless of diagnoses. No official diagnosis is necessary, people's self knowledge of their own nervous system will be respected. (Sometimes ppl can feel like they aren't neurodivergent enough, and if that's what's going on for you, talk to us!)

Accessibility info: This is now online. If you have any accessibility needs for this group now that it's online, please let us know!  Open to folks from all regions but check your time zones bc this is on PST.

Playing live on your phone! They'll be taking donations to help us and our friends at The Hub!

***Hub Fundraiser still ongoing: The Santa Cruz Hub for Sustainable Living is a constellation of community-based projects that has been building and celebrating community and offering crucial resources since 1994. We are currently closed for community safety, and rather than have each individual project at the Hub shoulder the burden for rent alone, we are focused on a collective effort to raise rent/expenses all together, and we're asking you to help us with that! Thanks for your support!

SubRosa is a collectively run anarchist community space, a place to meet others and challenge our assumptions and act on our passions. We strive to create a vibrant environment for events, classes, meetings, organizing, performance, art, studying and more. SubRosa also offers radical literature for sale, and houses the Anarchist Lending Library. We welcome folks to join us in fostering an environment free from coercion, sexism, queer&homophobia, racism, ableism and other hierarchies.

SubRosa is part of the Hub Community Center, in downtown Santa Cruz, CA which is the unceded territory of the Awaswas-speaking Uypi Tribe. The Amah Mutsun Tribal Band, comprised of the descendants of indigenous people taken to missions Santa Cruz and San Juan Bautista during Spanish colonization of the Central Coast, is today working hard to restore traditional stewardship practices on these lands and heal from historical trauma.

Comments on the SubRosa website are fully moderated. As a collective, we agreed that the purpose of the website was to promote SubRosa, not to provide an online place for lively and invigorating debate. We hope that the space itself is where conversations on the nature of anarchism and local projects will take place. That said, we occasionally approve comments that are informative or reflect a viewpoint we feel it is important for website visitors to read.
