ABOUT EVERYBODY:
EVERYBODY is a fitness + wellness space in NE LA / Cypress Park, devoted to providing a safe and supportive environment for all bodies to move, strengthen, and heal. We believe that health and wellness should be accessible, affordable and adaptive to all people regardless of their gender, race, age, size, or ability.

ACCESSIBILITY

QUEER CARE LA will take place in the outdoor courtyard space at EVERYBODY. It is partially covered and set back from the street. 

Single stall, gender neutral restrooms are located inside the gym. 

Please come **free of scents** (colognes, perfumes, oils, body products, laundry detergent, etc.) If you have questions about this, post here or feel free to directly email one of our organizers, Jonah at jonahalinedaniel at gmail dot com. We are also working with the vendors to make sure that essential oil products aren't detrimental to anyone's health. 

Getting there/parking: there are several bus lines that can get you to the location: the 90, 91, 94 and 794 lines on San Fernando Road, and the 28 on Cypress Road (directly behind the location.) There is also a parking lot on the premises and another large lot right across the street at the Rio State Park.

If anyone needs some quiet time during the event, there is a park directly across the street with a lot of green and peaceful walking paths.

The organizers of Queer Care have also composed a Statement of Purpose, here below. We hope this helps you all get to know us a little better!

QUEER CARE STATEMENT OF PURPOSE:
We are a group of queer radical herbalists + healers organizing intentionally as a multi-racial collective with diverse class, religious, and ability backgrounds. We are committed to healing justice, radical mental health, and class accessibility. 

We aim to create and support community for queer herbal practitioners and folks seeking herbal healing, via educational events, skillshares, and workshops that center herbalists of color and resist cultural appropriation. 

Because of the ways in which capitalism and government regulation control and commodify sacred and community-based herbal traditions, we seek to contribute to an alternative model of access to herbal medicine.

We are: 
Guadalupe Rocio Chavez / Agua Dulce Healing
Elokin Orton-Cheung / Shooting Star Botanicals
Jonah Aline Daniel / Plants as Allies / Narrow Bridge Candles
Lizanne Deliz / Eye of Crow Herbs
Melanie Griffin / Magenta's Magical Medicinals
Stephanie Syd Yang / Blue Jaguar Healing Arts / Three Legged Crow
