Glittergasm is a party for trans women, cis women, and nonbinary folks to interact with others of that group in a very chill way where physical touch and exploration is allowed in a safe, non-judgmental space at the comfort and speed of the folks involved. This event tends to skew femme of center, however, we welcome our masc of center friends! While we do not police and will not turn away anyone, we ask that this space is respected, and that cis man, trans men, and others who identify as men consider whether or not they are a good fit for this event. No one under 18 will be permitted to attend.

Glittergasm is a "choose your own adventure" event. There are multiple levels of interaction for individuals to engage at their own comfort and pace with individuals who might be at similar levels of comfort and interaction.

Can you tell me more about what happens at events?

Glittergasm and Rainbowgasm are kind of choose your own adventure events. There are multiple levels of interaction for individuals to engage at their own comfort and pace with individuals who might be at similar levels of comfort and interaction. 

- G: "Bathing suit bottom coverage" (nipples are allowed) required in this space. This is a no sex space, where the food will be and there will be activities such as coloring, board games, a blanket fort, etc. (note: activities may vary by event

- PG-13: "Bathing suit bottom coverage" (nipples are allowed) required in this space. This is a fun space for make outs and cuddling, plus we'll have make out games like truth or dare and spin the bottle available for those who want to play!

- R: Full nudity allowed. Full sex space.

- Kink: Full nudity allowed. Full sex and kink activities. 

We want people to be comfortable and have a good time in a space where touching is allowed, but not required. There's also a welcome circle at the beginning of each event to go over rules and help make everyone feel more comfortable!

Can I invite people or bring a friend?

Yes, absolutely!!! Our events cater to different demographics (see the "What is Glittergasm" and "What is Rainbowgasm" tabs for details), however as long as someone is a good fit for an event, we'd love to had them.

Attendees to all of our events must be vetted. If you bring a friend they also must fill out the vetting form to be allowed entry, even if you are purchasing their ticket. Please send your guest(s) this link to follow our sign up process, which allows them to attend and will give them access to information about all future events.

What should I wear to an event?

Whatever clothing you feel most comfortable in! Everyone must arrive in clothes that would be considered street legal, and your bottom bits must be covered in the PG and PG-13 rated areas during an event (however nipples are permitted in these spaces). 

What should I bring to an event?

It's entirely up to you, however here's a few suggestions:

• Safer sex supplies (we try to have some safer sex supplies on hand, but supplies are limited)

• Your preferred lubricant

• Sex toys

• Sexy clothes (if you wish to change when you get here)

• A snack to contribute to our potluck (please label food with all ingredients!)

Do I have to play, get naked, etc at these events?

ABSOLUTELY NOT! 

All of our events center consent and while play is allowed in designated spaces, no one needs to do anything. We've designed our events to center consent and sex positivity, which includes making space for those who do not wish to play. We also believe that voyeurism is participation.

Why do the doors close at a specific time and what's a welcome circle?

Having a closed door event allows us to create a more comfortable space for our guests. After the doors close we run through a Welcome circle where we set the mood and intentions for the evening, as well as address rules, etiquette, and where everything is—which takes around 20 minutes or so, and it's important that everyone be working with the same information.

We find that it can be hard to feel as comfortable with new people coming in and out of play parties, and that our guests enjoy an environment where everyone is a bit more familiar and that attending our welcome circle fosters a sense of community for the evening.

While we do not allow new people to join our events after the "closed door" time, guests are welcome to leave the event whenever they're comfortable and can step outside for air, etc. We want you to be comfortable and to do whatever you need to do to take care of yourselves!

Is there a "pay-what-you-can" option available for events?

Yes there is!! We don't believe money should be a barrier to community, so we always have a "pay-what-you-can" option available for our events (if it's not showing on the ticket page, please email us at the address below, we just ran out of that type of ticket, but can add more if needed unless the event is sold out).

Our "pay-what-you-can" option on Eventbrite currently requires you to put in some amount of money, however, if it's not possible to pay anything, you're still welcome to attend, just email us at hello@glittergasmevents.com and we'll help get you set up! 

Our "pay-what-you-can" option is funded in part by generous attendees who contribute to our "Glitter Fund," so if you're able to, please consider contributing!

I Have An Accessibility Question, Request, or Concern...

Given that folks can have a wide variety of accessibility needs, we recognize that accessibility is a goal and that we can always strive to make our events more accessible.

Since we do not always host our events at the same venue, we post venue-specific accessibility information in each event description.  

Please feel free to contact us with any accessibility questions, requests, or concerns. We prioritize accessibility and continually strive to make our events increasingly accessible to as many people as possible.

Are alcohol and/or drugs allowed at Glittergasm Events?

No, all Glittergasm Events are sober spaces. Please do not bring alcohol or drugs to events.

Why is there a fragrance-free / fragrance awareness policy?

I'm glad you asked! Although it's not a well-known issues, fragrances, or more accurately the chemicals that are used to create fragrances, can cause severe health issues for many people and we aim to make our events as accessible as possible.

Both Rachael and Rebecca, your Glittergasm hosts, are two of the people who's health is severely impacted by fragrances so we take this policy very seriously.

For additional information and tips on what should be avoided, please check out this article, Accessibility: A Beginner’s Guide to Fragrance and Chemical Sensitivities.

Can I buy Glittergasm Merchandise?

Yes, you can! Please visit our RedBubble shop to see what's available.

How to share feedback about our events

Great! We love feedback! In fact, we love it so much we have a form you can fill out here

WHY AREN'T EVENTS HELD AT ______ LOCATION?

As it turns out, it's pretty challenging to find spaces that will allow us to hold parties where sex is permitted.

Our options are even further diminished by accessibility concerns and cost—many venues would require us charge more than we're comfortable with just to meet the minimum of hosting events in that venue. 

That said, we're doing our best to branch stay on top of potential venues in the Philadelphia region and we'll keep everyone updated in our Facebook group when we have information to share. If you'd like more information and aren't on Facebook, or you have a venue suggestion for us, please feel free to email us at hello@glittergasmevents.com.
