Paxsies x Queer Gym
The first Dutch gym aimed at non-normative bodies.
Queer Gym was founded by Romy Rockx (he/him, who/their); located in Rotterdam West. During the early days of my transition, I was lucky enough to train in my brother-in-law's home gym. There I got to know my new body without thinking about how others displayed it or what I had to dress for. Everyone wants a safe place to exercise, but there where only for a few. That must be different!
What is Queer?
Queer is an umbrella term for anyone who doesn't feel at home in the existing boxes: an anti-category. This can include gender, sexuality, abilities/mental limitations, beauty ideals, identity recognition (skin color) and body weight/shape. As a result, the threshold to go to a regular sports lesson can be very high.
Who is Queer gym for?
Queer Gym is for anyone who wants to train in a safe setting to (re) find the pleasure and confidence in your body and in movement.
