Under My Roof – Calendar release + Behind the scene
The new Queer Calendar 2023 is here! At the moment only in Berlin stores. From 12.12.22 at Platte – Memhardstraße 8, 10178 Berlin and Aka – Pflügerstraße 6, 12047 Berlin. And from 13.12.22 at Studio183 – Budapester Str. 46, 10787 Berlin.
This year all profit goes to Casa Kuà. Each year we shot and printed a calendar by and for the queer community, and donated all the proceeds to a queer organization, in the past we donated to GLADT and TransSexWorks.
2020 was about appropriating the concept of sexy calendars in garages. In 2021 we immortalised queer personalities in a sculptural way. This year we are focusing on communities and new forms of living together. How we queers are showing strong signs of new social possibilities. This is why this year is shot in project houses like Grüni73 and KuLe, showing people that live there and inviting in other collectives or generators of community in this city.
This is a non-profit project, and all benefits made will be donated to Casa Kuà. Casa Kuà is organised by trans* and non-binary BIPoCs to make health more accessible to other trans, inter, non-binary and queer people, and especially for those affected by racism. The aim of the centre is to bring an alternative, traditional, and conventional medical treatments together. We also want to bring communities together, centring the needs and wishes of BIPOC (Black, Indigenous & People of Colour) trans* people, because, for us, communities and health are inseparable. Casa Kuà is especially meant for the marginalised in the health system and in society, and who are disadvantaged due to discrimination, sexism, homo, trans* or inter* hostility. As we work from our own social positioning, the groups most important for us to work with are women, lesbians, queers, a-binary, inter and trans* people who are also affected by racism and illegalization.
