Do you want to get in the water? Or sweat in a sauna? Soak in the hot tub? Find it daunting to wear a bathing suit in public? Thinking of going to the pool but don't want to use a gendered change room? Need the staff to know how to use the mechanical lift, and have the stairs into the pool close to the change rooms? Don't want to have to wear a bathing suit top?
Trans folk, queers, people of colour, fatties, scars, fur, mobility aids, inked, pierced... This is a pool party celebrating all bodies. Let's ally and get wet!
Children are welcome.
