Inclusivity Statement

Peer Rope Adelaide Inc is a space for intentional inclusivity. We recognise the intersectionality that occurs in kink; acknowledging that we need to be aware of minorities, conscious of pervasive micro aggressions and work continually to provide a space for all our members and visitors to learn shibari which is free from intentional and unintentional harm with word and deed.

We do not accept discrimination, bigotry, racism, homophobia, transphobia, body shaming, ableism or sexism.

We know better and we do better.
