PantheaCon will adhere to state and federal laws which require age limitations and non-discrimination on the basis of age, race, national origin or gender. We also affirm the importance of safe space and will continue to schedule presentations that limit attendance to specific groups of individuals.
All workshops or rituals that say “Women Only” or “Men Only” will be open to all who self-identify as such.
PantheaCon cannot police all boundaries. One thing has become evident, simply seeking to make restrictions on gender unambiguous is not sufficient. Prospective presenters applying to make group-specific presentations should be clear in their language about limitations and observe these guidelines.
Private rooms, including Party or Meet-n-Greet rooms, at the Doubletree are not subject to this policy when they have closed or restricted events. In the past, groups have held invitation-only events and skyclad rituals in private rooms, and PantheaCon will not interfere in these private arrangements. When a party or meet-n-greet room is open to anyone at the conference, you must accept the gender self-identification that a member offers or risk not having a Party or Meet-n-Greet room in the future.*
PantheaCon aims to provide a safe environment for all of its members to enjoy their diverse paths. As we evolve, this policy may be subject to some nuanced changes in the future.
We welcome any and all comments on this policy. Feel free to email firstname.lastname@example.org – although we cannot promise a response, all emails will be read.
*If the room has a gender restriction clearly posted on the door please respect that and enter only if you self-identify as that gender even during open hours.
