Queer Headed: Beach Social 2.0 at Bartram Avenue Beach in Ventnor City
Sunday, August 27, 2023 – 2:00PM to 5:00PM
Why not take advantage of the last bits of summer?
Queer Headed is about intentional community building for those who want a Queer and Sober experience. This would include queer newcomers, pre-existing queer recovery communities, those who are queer and seeking a sober time out, and treatment providers that desire to add inclusivity to their model. At the core of it, they’re just trying to build friendships and chemical-free social experiences. Allies are for sure welcome!
Please Support Queer Headed
Queer and Sober fellowship exists in Southern NJ, yet it still experiences many bumps in the road. These barriers include financial hardship, discrimination, internalized transphobia, internalized homophobia, a newcomer’s fear of being rejected, lack of transportation, and amazing local treatment providers that would have to change the entire trajectory of their program in order to offer 100% inclusivity. Versus reinventing the wheel, we would like to provide a needed queer and inclusive cog for the local recovery community. Queer Headed’s mission is to provide sober community events, support, and resources to LGBTQIA+ individuals who face adversity due to the struggle of their specific Queer and Sober intersection.
From both a personal and vulnerable space, we understand how building Queer and Sober fellowship is not only challenging but feels almost impossible. Queer Headed seeks to reduce the distress behind this experience. This reduced stress is being offered to the queer newcomer, already recovering queer individuals who have approached meaninglessness in their recovery, treatment providers with queer clients, family members who know an individual in need of this resource, and anyone who is interested in a queer and sober experience. Allies are welcome! Queer Headed provides a once-a-month social event that seeks to create continuous and maintained Queer and Sober fellowship in our own backyard of Southern New Jersey.
The purpose is effectiveness without long transport and reducing financial hardship in doing so. Queer Headed also seeks to provide identified Queer and Recovering individuals with help when asked for support. Unfortunately, money is a true blockade in providing this resource to a much-needed and fundamental part of the recovery process. Please get in service by offering a donation. Your offering feeds the Queer and Sober intersection of South Jersey from a micro, mezzo, and macro level. It is invaluable and highly appreciated. Thank you very much for your kind heart, who sees a future of queer people no longer riddled by the mystery of addiction.
