We are beginning preparations to open Sete Outeiros, The Trans and Queer Wild Hideout, for its second year! A few additions and changes means we get to keep making the experience of visiting us even more special.Sete Outeiros is a space surrounded by nothing but nature (no neighbours!). It is set aside exclusively for the LGBT+ community and we have an extra special focus on trying to make an experience in nature accessible for some of the most marginalised individuals of that community.You can book a free stay at Sete Outeiros lasting from a weekend to two weeks. Here, depending on what kind of experience you are looking for, you will certainly find choices. From wonderful hiking or adventuring in nature, to swimming away in a beautiful isolated environment away from the eyes of cis-normative society, the place is a paradise. We have an ample library for study or entertainment, musical instruments, unusual and creative boardgames, art materials and plenty more to awaken within you the freedom to explore and learn.Depending on availability and time of year you may be able to learn carpentry, bio-construction, gardening, yoga or even receive free personal training from a trainer who specialises in the unique needs of trans bodies.When you write us about a visit please do mention anything you might be interested in particular and we will try to facilitate your desired experience as much possible.
Sete Outeiros is able to provide all of this free thanks to our patrons and donors that are keeping the project alive month by month. Starting with as little as a $1 a month you can add your name to the founding pillars as we have yet to reach our minimum monthly targets which will ensure that Sete Outeiros can continue to create this natural refuge open and free for people who would never be able to imagine such an experience otherwise.
This year we will be able to continue building work on what will be our grand central social space thanks to an extra special donation by Kit Wicksteed. I would also like to make special mention of all our patrons, right down to those who donate just the minimum $1 a month: students, or low income people who cannot spare much, but still want to help keep this project going. Generosity is not measured by the size of a donation — it’s through everyone’s efforts together that we stay open. An enormous thank you to everyone who contributes to the smiles, laughter and growth of everyone who passes through here.
