BEND is a London-based booking platform for queer movement classes. Like a big umbrella but for sweat not rain, it’s a place for you to book into some of your favourite queer-led activities and find new friends you didn’t know you were looking for. From yoga and running to strength training and dance.
Gyms can be uncomfortable places right?
Especially when they're pumped full of bodies that don't move like your body, with instructors who tell you to do things that don’t relate to you.
As queer and trans identifying trainers we get it bbz, we just want to have fun and get strong without categories and stereotypes thrown at us too! So, whilst we wait for the rest of the world to catch up, what better way to find a place for our bodies and for our community than to make one?
Knowledgeable, professional trainers are not exclusive to cis-het spaces. We’d like to keep on building up the communities that we’ve already established and encourage others to move with freedom in their bodies. Not only that but as a grassroots venture we would like this collective space to be for the queers by the queers.
