I'm not going anywhere near the city this weekend. Hoards of drunken men stumbling around in packs make me more that just a little nervous, and their costumes do nothing to alleviate this.
However, if you cannot avoid the city, friends of mine have organised a safe place to hang out at Glover Park.
From the poster:
Need a space to chill out during the Sevens weekend in Central Wellington?
Having problems with noise, drama or harassment?
Want a friendly, safer space to hang during your night out on the town?
Come along to Glover Park (Ghuznee/Garret St off Cuba), where we will be holding a chill out zone for those seeking some peace and quiet uring the busiest weekend in Wellington. There will be music, games, refreshments, zine-making and all around good times!
Please note: This is designed to be a queer/trans*/woman/child friendly, accessible space. Racism, sexism, homophobia, transphobia, and other forms of oppression will not be tolerated. We ask that all those using the zone respect the guidelines, and make it welcoming for those in need.
