AT SCHWULES MUSEUM BERLIN

Queer MoC Berlin is a self-organized group for black and queer men*of color. By “man” we mean any person who identifies themselves as a man or moves along the spectrum of masculinity: trans*, inter* and cis men of Color, we warmly invite, especially those who are exposed to other forms of racism and discrimination, to come to our meetings.

Our group should serve as a meeting place for mutual support, exchange of experience, as a discussion platform or for the organization of various events, such as parties, dinners, film screenings and workshops on topics relevant to us – or so we can simply spend a good time together!

The aim of this support group is to provide a safer space for Black, Indigenous and Persons of Color Queer people who are going through psychological troubles, looking for therapy or counselling, facing isolation due to the psychological problems and looking for social contact with other Queer BIPOC’s in similar situations. It is a space to share experiences, information, resources, stories, time, empathy and energies with one another.

Each monthly meeting will cover a different topic ranging from exploring a specific psychological issue, how to understand and navigate the mental health and at times just sharing space while watching a film or crafting.

Location: GLADT e.V. Lützowstraße 28, 10785 Berlin.
You will need to enter through the main entrance and then go up to the top floor. If you are having any trouble finding the place just give us a call @ 01521 1859839 or send KJcounselling a message on Facebook.
