A note about costumes

Halloween costumes can be a great opportunity to explore new identities, celebrate our heroes, or find some humor in the often sad state of the world’s affairs. Unfortunately they can also be an often unwitting way to reinforce discrimination through gender and racial stereo types as well as exploiting and caricaturizing marginalized cultures.

In selecting your costume for APeX events, please be mindful of what your costume may say or the effect it may have on marginalized groups or cultures. A costume is inappropriate if is demeaning to a group of people, reinforcing of stereotypes of a race, gender, or sexuality, or appropriates traditions from a culture which is not your own.

APeX’s efforts to create a safe space for our guests are not compatible with these kinds of costumes. If you arrive wearing a costume which is discriminatory or demeaning, you will be asked to remove it or leave the event.

For some guidelines and help in understanding why some costumes are damaging, please see: From Everyday Feminism: "Is Your Halloween Costume Racist?" by Kate Lazo

If you need help in determining whether a costume idea might be appropriate, please feel free to reach out. Please understand this policy itself is not up for debate.
