Queer Box Camp is a space for queers, Two Spirited, trans*, gay, bi, lesbian, non-binary, gender creative people. We want to provide a space that is different from the sexist old school gyms as well as the mainstream fitness boxing classes that too often come with fatphobia, beauty standards, gender normative expectations.
Equipment: We have hand wraps and gloves, just bring INDOOR shoes and comfortable gym clothing.
Fees: $15 drop in, $40 for the month (further rates if you wanted to attend more than one class a week which we highly recommend: $65 for two classes week, $95 for three classes and $105 for ALL QBC classes) LOW INCOME FEE $55 for ALL classes
Check out the schedule on the facebook page to see all the classes happening at Queer Box Camp.
