Our Safe Space Policy

Creating a safe space starts with the organizers of the event. As an organizers we have taken the time to learn and be sensitive to ALL of the diversity of our community. This includes things like race, gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, and fetishes We take this very seriously and try very hard to practice what we preach. So with that said here you go!

WSPC Safe Spaces Policy

WSPC as event organizers want you to feel safe and to be safe at our events and operate the following Safe Spaces Policy. The most important thing we want you to know is that if something or someone makes you feel uncomfortable at one of our events, no matter how minor it seems, you can report it to us.
Harassment of event participants, staff or volunteers at the event will not be tolerated and anyone violating this policy at our events may be be expelled without refund.

Harassment includes offensive verbal comments or attitudes related to gender, gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, fetishes, disability, physical appearance, body size, race, religion; deliberate intimidation, stalking, following, sustained disruption of the event, inappropriate physical contact, and unwelcome sexual attention. Participants asked to stop any harassing behavior are expected, to comply immediately.

Please know that WSPC view neither ignorance or intoxication as an excuse for unacceptable behavior.
If anyone engages in harassing behavior towards you, we will take any action we deem appropriate, including warning the offender or expulsion from the event (with no refund). If you feel you are being harassed, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact TG, Griff or one of our hospitality staff at the event immediately. (We prefer to deal with these types of issues immediately rather than after the event so please don't be shy)
We will be happy to help participants contact venue security or local law enforcement, provide escorts, or otherwise assist those experiencing harassment to feel safe for the duration of the event.

While we would like to feel that we offer an environment in which you can voice concerns about incidents as and when they happen we also welcome you to reach out to us to inform us of past harassment or incidents related to our events which made you feel uncomfortable or unsafe.
We as organizers also accept that we are not above our own policies so please know all of the above applies to all members of WSPC and those acting on our behalf including event staff and security staff in equal measure. Furthermore if there are ever any aspects of our events including our communication, artwork, performances, which you feel is offensive or makes you uncomfortable please inform us and we will do our best to rectify the situation.
