Dyke Weekend is an annual international Womyn’s weekend event where queer ladies from all around Japan come together, meet new people, hold workshops, discuss issues, play sports, and get to know each other better at the river BBQ. This event has been going on since the 90′s, and has formed some of the best memories of queer life in Japan for many past attendees. Dyke weekend will be held at the usual time during Golden Week May 4th, 5th, and 6th, 2012. The facility is a Women’s Educational Center in Saitama-ken. The facilities are “hotel” style quality for hostel prices. This year, we have booked the gymnasium and arts/craft room, and the field, and workshop rooms. If you’re interested in holding a workshop, PLEASE let us know. We need presenters still. Some of the past workshops have been massage therapy, cooking, BDSM, communicatio/counseling, reading circle. If you have any special skills, please please please let us know.
. Right now, there are 13 spaces on Friday, with priority given to organizers, and workshop holders, and people who are coming from far away. Check in is anytime after 3pm on Friday. Also, if you only wish to stay 1 night on Saturday, that’s also an option. Saturday is usually the biggest day, and we have 52 spaces right now. I know many of you are beginning to plan your Golden Week plans, now, so it’s better to reserve your spot earlier rather than later. In the past, more spots open up closer to the date, as other groups cancel their reservations.
On Saturday, we usually hold most workshops in the morning, sports activities in the afternoon, a barbecue for dinner, and a low-key party for the night.
This facility is not far from what looks like a strip mall, with shops, a grocery store and restaurants. Also, there’s a cafeteria in the building, however outside food is allowed too.
The only things we ask of you is to HAVE FUN, and TAKE YOUR TRASH with you when you leave the center. There aren’t many rubbish receptacles on site, and we have to respect the facility if we want to keep using it in the future.
Information will be updated on the website as people volunteer to do workshops, or other jobs. Volunteers do get a bit of a discount on their room stay.
