Quirk Christmas Market in support of Outhouse.
Community, solidarity and growth.
A year has passed since we started with the dream of gathering a bunch of creatives, artists, entrepreneurs, and business owners from the LGBTQIA+ Community, and we are celebrating it this year, supporting those who are always fighting for our rights and well-being.
The Christmas edition of Quirk Market would take place at Outhouse Dublin, on Capel street, in the heart of the city, on the 17 and 18th of December of 2022. Proudly announcing that a percentage of our profit would be donated to this organization, as well as fundraising that would be held during the market days.
As always we are looking for brands, artists, and designers, but also we are aiming for collectives, organizations, and support groups to apply for a spot in the market, so they can share what they do and expand their work to different audiences.
It is a complete realization for us, that the market would be celebrated at Outhouse, in their support, for our own growth as a community. Their mission since they opened in 1997, was to offer a safe space with help, information, drop-in spaces, and social gatherings in their café, and that is basically what Quirk Market is about.
In Ireland, we are still battling for human rights like medical care for the non-conforming gender folks, access to medication equally, and representation, which comes from our active participation in society. Quirk is all of our voices together, celebrating our identities, diversities and exchanging love!
