The Weekend Events

THE WEEKEND SOIREE HITS new orleans

The Weekend Soiree is THE PREMIER Celebration for Queer Womxn! Fresh off of our inaugural retreat, The Rocky Mountain Rollout in The Mile High City (Denver, 2018), where we hosted more than 100 Queer Womxn at the Magnolia Hotel, we’re back at it... this time, in New Orleans! For 2019, we're bringing an even bigger and doper Weekend Soiree, Bedlam In The Big Easy.

As a Weekender, you’ll have a 360-degree experience that will leave you fed and full! The Weekend Soiree provides Weekenders, like yourself, with nighttime experiences and daytime workshops that honor you, us, we as multicultural Queer Womxn.

Our Rocky Mountain Rollout featured workshops covering diverse topics, including:

  • Passion Painting with The Muses

  • Build Your Booty and Body Bootcamps with Carter the Body

  • Communication in the Bedroom and Board Room

  • Reclaiming Queer Womxn’s Sexuality

  • Curating Sophisticated Cocktails

  • Financial Literacy and Wealth Accumulation 

  • And so much more!

In addition to workshops, Weekenders uncorked, popped bottles and cut rugs every night at our signature Set It Off Party, The Weekender Ball, The Wicked & Wondrous Comedy Show and The Sunset Barbeque.

At Bedlam In The Big Easy, there’ll be even more for you to explore! Simply put, at The Weekend Soiree, Weekenders have access to events and workshops that serve your wellness, creativity and intellect. Come thru, get fed!

We invite all Queer Womxn to join us on this luxurious and fun-filled adventure. Check out last year’s 2018 Rocky Mountain Rollout itinerary for a full view of our weekend experience! View 2018 itinerary

Digging Up Roots Writing Workshop

Digging Up Roots is a creative non-fiction workshop for Us.  It's for Us poverty-born. Us black. Us brown. Us Queer. Us trans. Us mentally ill. Us trauma survivors. Us Felons. Us formerly incarcerated. Us marginalized. Us brazen. Us renegades. Us fighters. Us Womynx. Us... During this workshop, you'll  lean into your wounds, serve your sacred voice and honor your battle scars by writing your truth.

Nicole Shawan Junior (Smith College BA | Pace University MST | Temple University JD) was bred in the bass-heavy beat and scratch of Bed Stuy, where the cool of beautiful inner-city life barely survived the crippling caused by crack cocaine. She is a black, Queer and poverty-born Womanist, Felon and former police prosecutor. A story teller and educator, she enjoys putting pen-to-paper to capture the journeys of real and fictitious around-the-block black girls. Her writing has been featured in For Harriet and The Feminist Wire.
