OPEN RELATIONSHIP events take place on the ancestral, traditional, and unceded homelands of the Musqueam, Skxwú7mesh, and Tsleil-Waututh peoples. As we organize, we also remember the historical and ongoing colonial genocide against Indigenous peoples that make it possible for us to be here as settlers.

THE BUDDY SYSTEM:
Please remember: consent is sexy… and mandatory. Leave your oppressive misogynistic, transphobic, racist, ableist behaviour at the door. The Buddy System will be in effect at Open Relationship. All Buddies will be wearing glowing bracelets around both wrists. Buddies will have bottled water handy for you, run interference if someone is receiving unwanted attention and generally serve as go-to support people should any problems arise.
While Open Relationship cannot encourage the use of recreational drugs, we understand the folks have a variety of ways they like to party. We will have drug-testing kits available with trained Buddies to administer NARCAN (available at our party) in the event of an opiate overdose.
The Gorg-O-Mish is located at 695 Smithe St. just off Seymour St. The main entrance usually asks visitors to climb three 8 inch high steps in order to get to the elevator that brings them up to the main area of the venue. Open Relatinoship will be renting and installing a wheelchair/scooter accessible ramp that will jut out past entrance doors and into the sidewalk so as to create a low incline for people to access entrance doors, which measure at 35 inches wide. In order to get to the main venue area, everyone must enter via the elevator which measures at 4.2 m by 6.7 m.
There are two all-genders washrooms on site, each with an accessible washrooms in them.
