Come one, Come all, Girls, Boys, POC, Trans, Non-Binaries, & Queers!!

Santa Cruz is a cultural hub for white/macho male, inflated ego bro's with an agenda to bash others who aren't heteronormative surf jocks or skater bois. A large proportion of the shopping in downtown Santa Cruz is made up of corporate skate and surf shops who capitalize on the culture of what normie's would consider cool and fashionable. Those who are stylistically unique, or just learning the basics of skating are often scrutinized or made fun of because of the overwhelming insecurities surrounding the collective heteronormative male ego.

In response..

We are going to be hosting our VERY FIRST Queer Skateboarding Day with help from Oakland's Unity Skateboards! If this one goes well, we will be planning to make Queer Skate Day's a regular monthly event where people can come, skate, and hang out w/o getting vibed or made fun of!!

Unity Queer Skateboarding is a DIY venture from Oakland, CA.

We will be meeting at 2pm on Saturday, February 3rd at Mission Plaza Park in Santa Cruz (across the street from Holy Cross Church).
