A QUEER CONVERGENCE will be happening at the Greenbelt National Park in Greenbelt, MD on Friday and Saturday nights, April 28-29. The Park is conveniently located near the College Park, MD metro station, so getting to/from the march will be super easy.
We hope this gathering will be a beautiful experience of solidarity between queer people who care about the earth coming together from across the country, and give us a bit more time to prepare for/recover from the experience of marching together on Saturday. Greenbelt Park is a peaceful, natural setting to hold fire circles, share food, be in nature and share our stories with each other.
Thanks to the People's Climate March organizers we have a block of free sites reserved to make it economically accessible to all queers! You are welcome to stay one or both nights, as you wish.
They are also providing us with firewood and a budget for food, so -- don't let money stop you from joining us if you'd like to be there for this historic weekend.
