Soft Animal aims to center marginalized people by creating events and spaces that are accessible, safe, inclusive and fun.
The founders are queer and saw a gap in the local market to serve LGBTQ+ residents.
Their desire to create a safe community is inherently intersectional, so Soft Animal also specifically supports all humans who feel they are pushed to the margins of society. This includes people with disabilities + members of the Black, Hispanic, Latino, and Asian communities.
Our business name comes from a Mary Oliver poem, called “Wild Geese.”
It says, “You do not have to be good. You do not have to walk on your knees for a hundred miles through the desert repenting. You only have to let the soft animal of your body love what it loves.”
We seek to celebrate being and create joy through intentional experiences catered to the soft animals of our bodies.
