Membership in Wish costs 150 SEK per year. You can only become a member via personal contact with the board, for example by e-mailing or by coming to a pub meeting (munch), party or workshop (see Activities). The reason why we want to have personal contact with each person before they become a member is that we are eager to keep the association’s separatism and only allow persons to become members who are part of our target group: ”women, trans and/or intersex who live with their identity on an every day basis and has an interest in BDSM and fetichism”. This is not to be mean but to be able to guarantee Wish’s members a separatist space for the exploration of gender and sexuality beyond the borders of heteropatriarchy. Through this target group description we claim our right to define this space in the way we feel the most secure with.
We like to point out, however, that each and every request about membership is evaluated individually, and that we hope that no one feels refrained from getting in touch. We understand that everyone cannot be open with their identity and gender expression all the time, and that one can be in different stages of the development of one’s gender identity. Whenever you get in touch with Wish you will be met with respect and competence, just as we presume that you show consideration for our choice of separatist demarcation.
