What’s the thinking behind Get Bent?

    * Get Bent is a safe space for all genders and sexualities and seeks to engage with and foster the possibility of creating queer-positive spaces.

    * Get Bent challenges the notion that you have to act or dress a certain way to be accepted.

    * Get Bent follows a DiY ethic, creating wide variety of programming by supporting diverse people to create diverse events.

    * Get Bent provides an alternative to commercial gay spaces by creating a queer autonomous space that is sex-positive without being sex-centered, doesn’t depend on alcohol to have a good time, and is unafraid to put the politics back into pride.

    * Get Bent fosters a sense of community by being inclusive: all ages, all incomes, all abilities, all ethnicities and cultural backgrounds, regardless of HIV status, those who are comfortable in commercial gay spaces and those who aren’t.

    * Everyone is welcome to participate in this celebration of queerness!
