Accessibility

We welcome people of all genders and sexualities – whatever your identity, we’d love to see you there. Straight allies are also welcome!

We operate a safer spaces policy, to make sure that everyone feels as secure and happy in the space as possible. This means that we ask that everyone in the space thinks about how their words and actions might affect others, and that everyone treats each other with respect. If it comes to it, we won’t tolerate any harmful behaviour, including but not limited to: language that perpetuates oppression (homophobia, transphobia, biphobia, sexism, racism, ableism, classism, sizeism, ageism etc), hate speech, non-consensual touching, and threats. Anyone violating the safer spaces policy will be asked to leave, and repeat offenders will be refused entry to future events. Please let one of the event organisers know if you don’t feel safe at any point!

Unfortunately the venue for the Free Fringe show a bit of a challenge in terms of accessibility. There is step-free access into the performance space, but there are no accessible toilets. Step-free access is through a door just down the hill from the main entrance. While we do our best to use accessible venues – such as the Bongo Club, which hosted OUT:SPOKEN #2 – August is a whole different kettle of fish. So apologies for not managing to find a fully accessible venue! As always, please get in touch with any accessibility requirements on out.spoken.edinburgh@gmail.com, and I will do my very best to find a way to accommodate them.
