When you participate an Inside-Out Journey activity, you are contributing to the overall experience, which makes us all accountable to each other.
Therefore we have established this Code of Conduct to provide guidelines to Participants and to ensure that all Participants understand what behavior is expected, and what behavior will not be tolerated. We expect all Participants to abide by this Code of Conduct. This includes during the activity itself and in related online communities and social media.
We are dedicated to providing a harassment-free and inclusive event experience for everyone regardless of gender identity and expression, sexual orientation, disabilities, neurodiversity, physical appearance, body size, ethnicity, nationality, race, age, religion, or other protected category.

If you are being harassed or feel uncomfortable, notice that someone else is being harassed, or have any other concerns, please contact an event staff person immediately.
Any sexual activity that takes place during the event, must be engaged by all parties “enthusiastically”. “Enthusiastic consent” means that there is a focus on a positive expression of consent through verbal and non-verbal cues. Giving cues alone does not necessarily equate to consent but instead are additional indications that may display permission. Consent is about good communication and checking in with your partner to ensure you agree and are on the same page when engaging in sexual activity.
Consent doesn’t only apply to sexual activity. It’s important to get consent for any activity that may interact with another person’s boundaries.
Unacceptable behavior from any community member will not be tolerated. Unacceptable behavior includes, but is not limited to:
