Burning Man

Recommended Posts

Has anyone on this site attended the Burning Man festival in Nevada? Trying to go this year and just trying to absorb as much info as I can to wrap my head around it before I go. 

I've got a lot to do in ~9 months, but I can do it. I'm excited.

Not personally, but there is a very good documentary about it broadcast on the VICE channel (which I believe has a YouTube page)

Not familiar with that one, but I looked up the videos about the Glamcocks among others. I'm fascinated about the whole thing, but I think experiencing it from in primarily gay culture and in primarily queer camps will lead me to have a drastically different week than what I'm seeing in videos from more mainstream or heteronormative spaces. 

I've got a lot of prep work on myself to do, though, in the meantime.

I've heard a couple things, but mostly about how the "town" is constructed and deconstructed, and how the rules work (for example here). Other than that, not a lot, but it's really cool you're planning on going. You'll have to let us know how it goes!
