QUEER CRUSH CLIMBING
COMMUNITY - HEALTH - HEALING
A 501(c)3 led by queer rock climbers.
'I can bring enthusiasm and be that queer hollering my excitement for each individual, and they can be their authentic queer selves around me! If I can help folks feel safe, that means the world to me.'

WHAT WE DO
Queer Crush Climbing is about creating safe and inclusive spaces for those who are diverse in their gender, romantic, and sexual orientations. We empower Queer, Trans, Black, Indigenous, and People of Color of all abilities to seek healing, health, community and connection with the land through the art and sport of climbing.
Building Meaningful Belaytionships
We host regular meetups serving 1,500 members across California—with recent events nearing 100 participants, despite the pandemic.
Cultivating Safer Spaces
We partner with community spaces such as climbing gyms and nonprofits that are committed to queer allyship across intersections such as race, ethnicity, class, and immigrant status.
We provide experiential trauma-informed DEI workshops specific for the climbing community, led by climbers who are also mental health professionals.
Let us know if you want to partner with us or for media inquires.
