What “Queer” Means to Us

“Queer not as being about who you’re having sex with (that can be a dimension of it); but queer as being about the self that is at odds with everything around it and has to invent, create and find a place to speak and to thrive to live”

— bell hooks

The Queer Sanctuary

We're crafting a space where individuals access resources that elevate quality of life and foster personal and collective growth, all within a nurturing natural environment.

Kura — to heal

From Papiamento, a Portuguese-Spanish creole based language, spoken in the Antilles

Alma — soul

From Portuguese - although Papiamento shares the same word, with the same meaning.
