#10 Beauty Basics for Queer People

Trans-inclusive makeup workshop by Timothy Paul. Join Caribbean Queer Salon for this live make-up tutorial.

EN

On August 3, Timothy Paul hosts a trans-inclusive makeup workshop at our Studio Space. Over the two hours we seek to ensure a safe beauty space for queer and trans individuals. During the workshop you will get a live makeup demo, tips and tricks for beauty and skin care, as well as a Q&A and food.

Driven by the mantra that beauty has no boundaries, Timothy Paul has made it his mission to make every kind of person look and feel beautiful. His driving force is the belief that beauty should be crafted and accessible to everyone. With this in mind he has always strived to make everyone beautiful, carefully carving out spaces for people who traditionally have been left out of the beauty conversation.

While there is a proliferation of artists currently, Timothy Paul’s signature is carefully crafting the image of a bold, strong and assertive individual prepared for any challenge.

Caribbean Queer Salon is a space born out of a need where people from the English speaking Caribbean can talk openly and honestly about issues that affect them. What does intersectionality and a multidimensional framework actually look like and what does it mean to be black and queer and immigrant in a historically Eurocentric environment? At Caribbean Queer Salon we organize regular meetings and events focused on dialogue and community building. We use this to fill a much needed gap in current queer spaces in which we cater to queer people from the English speaking part of Caribbean.

Op 3 augustus host Timothy Paul een trans-inclusieve make-up workshop. Gedurende twee uur proberen we een veilige beautyruimte te creëren voor queer en trans individuen. Tijdens de workshop krijg je een live make-up demo, tips en trucs voor beauty en huidverzorging, Q&A en eten.

Gedreven door de mantra dat schoonheid geen grenzen kent, heeft Timothy Paul het zijn missie gemaakt om ieder mens er mooi uit te laten zien en zich mooi te laten voelen. Zijn drijfveer is de overtuiging dat schoonheid voor iedereen gemaakt en toegankelijk moet zijn.

Met dit in gedachten heeft hij er altijd naar gestreefd om iedereen mooi te maken, waarbij hij zorgvuldig ruimte heeft gemaakt voor mensen die traditioneel buiten het schoonheidsgesprek zijn gehouden.

Hoewel er momenteel een wildgroei aan artiesten is, is Timothy Pauls handtekening het zorgvuldig creëren van het beeld van een moedig, sterk en assertief individu dat op elke uitdaging voorbereid is.

Caribbean Queer Salon is opgericht door Timothy Aarons. Hij zag dat Engelssprekende Caribische mensen vaak werden vergeten of niet goed gerepresenteerd werden. Dit gaf de motivatie om de Caribbean Queer Salon te starten, een veilige ruimte voor Engelssprekende Caribische leden van de LGBTQI+-gemeenschap. Hier vinden ze een veilige plek om elkaar te ontmoeten, maar het initiatief heeft ook als doel de bewustwording en vertegenwoordiging van de Caribische queer gemeenschap te vergroten. Verder ondersteunt Caribbean Queer Salon mensen binnen hun gemeenschap die hulp nodig hebben, met uiteenlopende onderwerpen zoals bijvoorbeeld geestelijke gezondheid. Wanneer zij niet kunnen helpen, maken ze gebruik van verwijzingen om ervoor te zorgen dat de mensen uit de gemeenschap worden doorverwezen voor het oplossen van deze problemen.
