Advocates for Youth describes a safe space as:
“A place where anyone can relax and be fully self-expressed, without fear of being made to feel uncomfortable, unwelcome, or unsafe on account of biological sex, race/ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, cultural background, age, or physical or mental ability; a place where the rules guard each person’s self-respect and dignity and strongly encourage everyone to respect others.”
Tips to help maintain a safer spaces:
- Inquire about and respect the physical and emotional boundaries of others.
- Be responsible and accountable for your words and actions, be aware that intent is not magical.
- Always get explicit verbal consent before touching anyone or taking anyone’s photo.
- Respect peoples’ differing opinions, beliefs, points of view and states of being.
