Come dunk your chunk with us at the Peninsula Pool in North Portland. It’s the final dunk of the summer, we’ll have a special guest to help us wrap up our summer!
The brilliant artist and photographer behind #BodiesLikeOceans
, Shoog Mcdaniel (@shooglet and @shoogsart on instagram), will be joining us to help celebrate the end of Dunk season! They would love to do a free underwater group photo shoot with us. Of course, no one has to participate if they don’t want to. Participants will receive some photos from the shoot, and Shoog will use the pictures promotionally for their work and may sell some if they turn out awesome! Shoog is also available for private photo shoots while in town, so contact them to schedule if you’re interested!
As always, $5 cash donation at the gate per person to keep this non-profit event afloat, but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
Chunky Dunk is a fat, QTPOC & (a)gender affirmative non-profit organization that focuses on providing safer shame-free swimming for every BODY! We have reserved time at the Peninsula Pool from 5:15pm — 7:30pm on Saturday, August 11th for a private party. Please invite your fat and body positive friends! Children are welcome to attend!
Accessibility: The entrance to the facility is very close to the pool. There is a ramp leading to the pool, but there are a few steps getting into the pool. The pool goes from 2 feet to 8 feet deep. There is no diving board, but guests are allowed to dive in the deep end. There is no lift (lifts are only at indoor pools in Portland apparently). Accessible bathrooms are very close by.
Food: a concessions stand with limited options will be open during the event. Guests are encouraged to bring their own food and drinks. No glass containers and no alcohol allowed.
Photos: No photography allowed unless each person in the photo consents. Let friends tag themselves if they wish to be tagged in your Chunky Dunk photos.
