This separatist space is again being created by Raf and Levi at the very start of Stretch to enable trans and non-binary attendees to get to know each other a little, build some supportive networks and talk about how we might navigate and make the most of the festival as marginalised folx. We will talk about how it feels to be in this 'masculine', cis-male dominated space and explore what support we can offer each other as well as think about what we need for ourselves. Starting with some simple grounding/manifesting exercises, we will take time to think about boundaries, expectations and hopes to carry us through the festival.
