STRETCH FESTIVAL is a weekend festival for gay, bi, trans and queer men* and people who identify somewhere on a gender-fluid male-to-non-binary spectrum.
The festival usually takes place in the heart of Berlin three times a year.
After 5 canceled physical STRETCH FESTIVALS due to Covid-19 restrictions, we are thrilled that we are finally able to welcome our stretchies again in our beautiful space in Berlin.
Over the past year our online community however has also grown, allowing us to reach participants and facilitators who aren't physically able to attend the event in Berlin. Consequently, in addition to our regular in-space event, we will also offer an online only program, in order to create a hybrid experience of physical and virtual presentations, workshops, and events. We also hope that it can help nurture and reinvigorate so many connections we have built since 2014.
A hybrid edition is an opportunity to make Stretch accessible in a different way - participants and facilitators can join in from around the globe.
We love diversity, welcoming all bodies, skin colors, cultural backgrounds and gender identities within this larger und not-so-definable container of queer masculinities and their erotic attractions.
Expert teachers, practitioners, therapists, healers, renegades and artists invite you to this unique virtual gathering. Let's explore a wealth of offerings drawing from bodywork, mindfulness, art, movement, sexuality, psychology, spirituality, gender, identity, ritual, performance and social engagement.
Participants can choose from over 35 in space workshops and 24 online events, experiential explorations, presentations and talks in order to explore and inspire a more soulful and playful connection to one another and to life itself.
You’ll be able to connect with people spanning the globe in our virtual safe spaces to socialize, mingle or deepen exchanges.
Use this chance to discover and explore new ways of being, to nourish your body, mind, and spirit. We look forward to welcome curious and adventurous participants.
Having Stretch available online expands its' accessibility and offers a global festival experience through local participation. Join this extraordinary worldwide gathering of people.
Early registration ensures you a place in the space.
