Queer porn will be on the AV system–feel free to bring your own!
Support: The Hot Times Collective will have Trauma Team (T-Team) members available to all attendees throughout the night of the bathhouse. What this means, is there will be people who will be available to listen to people who are triggered or just need someone to talk to if they are not in a great headspace. What we can offer is active listening, resources and information on a variety of community organizations that also offer support. What we are not trained to offer is therapeutic advice or possible solutions to problems that might arise (though if it is an immediate situation in which guidelines are being disrespected T-team and / or organizing members will address it). We want to be transparent about what we can and can’t offer in the way of support for those who are interested in coming to the bathhouse, and trust you to make a decision about whether that is enough support or not. Please talk to T-team and organizing members if you have thoughts or suggestions on creating a safer space.
19+, ID required. Do not bring any valuables!
