A PLACE TO BELONG
platform - safer space - by & for bipoc
Fite Qlub is a multidisciplinary platform operating from a queer, intersectional and decolonial perspective. The foundation is catered to BIPOC LGBTQIA+ communities and aims to generate spaces where members get to connect, heal, educate and exchange within a wide range of different formats: from panel talks to play parties. Fiteqlub maintains an emphasis on approaching bodies, sexuality and their expression from an intersectional perspective: aiming to unveil how deeply embedded hegemonic conditions are in our intimate lives and our relationship to our bodies, and how to shift this narrative into safer, more flourishing cultures of sexual, physical and relational expression.
Our aim is to change the white cisgender binary heteronormative narrative, because it limits us in our existence. We want to create space for decolonial and intersectional perspectives when it comes to history, gender, culture, art, sexuality, music, body and mind. We want to show people that there is more than one dominant narrative. We create a platform for new narratives and stories for and by BIPOC LGBTQIAP+. We empower our community and inspire others by creating freedom of choices in our sexuality and gender identity. We break with the oppressive systems, by creating decolonial narratives by telling our ancestral stories. Our aim is creating a different hybrid word, where we all can exist next to each other, where we celebrate and acknowledge our differences. .
Fite Qlub represents a part of the Asian LGBTQI+ diaspora. Have you always assimilated and never felt like you belonged in BIPOC groups? Does being Asian and Queer speak to you? Does Queer Asian Visibility excite you? We are reaching out to queer asians who are seeking community, looking for a place to belong, to be politically engaged, to receive and offer support, bridge differences and to find each other. We empower ourselves as queer and asian by giving space to the unheard voices and rarely talked about problems we face and experience as a community and as individuals with multiple intersections.
The idea of polyamory and polyamorous experiences are fluid and in constant change, there is no formula to understand it, experience it and define it. There is a need to decolonize the established idea of love, to start enjoying relationships that help us grow in community.
For this edition of Queer City we are ready to break all conventional and binary ideas of love, intimacy and connection. Let’s explore love and relationships from a non western perspective, letting go of the established ideas and bringing in new ways to love.
Whether you are interested in developing your relationships, poly curious, or trying to find a safer space, get ready to go on a journey of self-discovery and exploration through performances, rituals, personal stories and different life experiences from BIPOC queer & trans community members that have chosen to experience love from openness, freedom and community care.

Kink is commonly seen and used just as an umbrella term for sexual and sensual practices, but kink has been used for generations in different cultures as a healing and empowering practice. For this edition of Queercity we are ready to break all preconceived and heteronormative ideas of kink and give space to re-discover kink as a liberation, healing and reconnecting tool. Let your fears and taboos go and join us in this evening full with sensual performances, erotic poetry, healing rituals and intimate conversations with members of our community that have chosen kink as a way to reclaim their queer bodies. With this Queercity, we are also celebrating our two year anniversary, so join us and help us keep creating accessible spaces for BIPOC queer and trans people.
