The Lavender Rights Project is joining with Queer Scouts for their monthly skill-share! Bring your own t-shirt or other garment and leave with a fun design that you’ll screenprint by hand.

We’ll be screenprinting one-color designs in white and black, hearing about the design-to-print process, and using screens owned by the Lavender Rights Project. Because we aren’t a screenprinting shop, our approach is very DIY—but that’s what makes it so much fun!

Exclusive designs include:

  • Trans Rights Are Human Rights

  • Femme Daddy

  • Gentle Them

  • Hard Hatted Homo

  • And more!

Refreshments will be provided, and extra t-shirts of various sizes are available for folks who don’t have a shirt to print on. Please wear clothes that you don’t mind getting dirty.

The space has doors that swing both in and out, but are not automatic doors. All doors have a width that is wheelchair accessible, and there are no stairs. The space is not currently scent-free, but we ask that attendees do not wear scents as a courtesy to our community members with scent sensitivity.

What is Queer Scouts?

Queer Scouts is a group of queer/trans adults and allies who get together at monthly participant-led skill-shares and outdoor adventures in the greater Seattle area. Skill shares may include: bike maintenance, archery, baking/cooking, gardening, sailing, climbing, astronomy, ceramics and music in addition to traditional scouting activities such as making a fire, first-aid, backpacking etc. The sky is the limit! In addition to these skill shares there will be an annual camping trip in collaboration with Queer Camp as well as volunteering opportunities (traditionally called Citizenship in the Boy Scouts) within our communities. There will be badges for each skill learned and an annual zine created of what we’ve done.

Mission Statement

Queer Scouts is committed to fostering inclusive, diverse, and fun monthly get-togethers for adults by challenging societal norms, empowering authentic self-expression, and building a thriving community through skill-shares, outdoor activities, dialogue, shared meals, and cooperative play. As queer/trans folks who missed out on Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts as kids, this is an opportunity to gain skills, move our bodies, volunteer for our communities, and enjoy the outdoors.
