Saturday Morning Cartoons

July 20th 11:00am - 2:00pm ∙ Columbus, OH

Saturday Morning Cartoons!!!

Miss sitting in front of Saturday morning cartoons in your pajamas, shoveling sugary cereal into your mouth without a care in the world? Wish you could do it all over again but make it at least 90% more queer than you remember? Wish there was a place where you could come and do just that with other people just like you, joining one another on a nostalgic journey celebrating the beautiful diversity of the LGBTQ community through the power of cartoons? Say no more, fam. We’ve got you covered. 

Grab a spoon, sit down, and dig into The Autonomy Project’s Saturday Morning Cartoons Extravaganza! On July 20th, from 11 am until 2 pm, Wicked Eden opens its doors for a daytime cartoon marathon and cereal buffet. We’ve got Scooby Doo. We’ve got Spongebob Squarepants. We’ve got Powerpuff Girls. We’ve got Steven Universe. We’ve got more than a few surprises. And everyone knows the optimal way to enjoy Saturday morning cartoons is with bottomless bowls of cereal, so we’ve got those, too! From fruity loops to chocolatey delights (with vegan options included), we’ll have something for every taste! 

This is the perfect event for anyone looking to connect with fellow members of the LGBTQ community, share stories and make friends in a welcoming environment, celebrate our community’s resilience, and come together to spread love and acceptance. And… watch cartoons! Come dressed in your PJs, as your favorite cartoon character, or however comfortable you feel! Tickets are available now, and we highly recommend you snap yours up before we sell out. We can’t wait to see you!

When it comes to attire, anything goes at Wicked Eden, we want you to feel comfortable and in the mood to have an adventure! Wicked Eden is a place where you can wear as much or as little as you desire. We want you to always feel comfortable expressing yourself in whatever ways you desire. We encourage you to go outside your comfort zone with festive, outrageous, or amazing clothing that you never get a chance to wear anywhere else. 


We LOVE volunteers! Join our team of community volunteers, and you will find new friends, a support system and a tight knit center of empowerment. Once you have obtained membership as above, please check out the volunteering section of The Autonomy Project website.

By volunteering with us you will have the opportunity to make a meaningful impact on people’s lives, but you will also get perks such as discounted or free access to our events and classes, and most importantly, collaborative input in what we do here. Your ideas are important to us, and as a volunteer, we want you to feel like you’re part of our community: one that celebrates who you are and supports your journey.


Our community thrives in a space where countless delightful interactions could happen, but none are obligated to occur. Think of it as “high possibility, low expectations.” Outside of our general requirements of respect, you are under no obligation to interact with anyone in any particular way. This makes our space ideal for new faces and seasoned community members alike.


Our events aren’t the product of one person hosting a party for pay; they’re the result of a community coming together and creating something new. Everyone who attends is expected to co-create: money, time, energy, enthusiasm, work, intention, example, concern and/or awareness. Have ideas, games, art, music to share? Want to bring them to life with us?


Our gatherings are magical because of trust. We fiercely protect each member’s privacy, encourage honest risk communication, and take diligent care of our shared environments. It’s our collective respect and integrity that fortify this safe space.


Upholding consent goes beyond preventing harm; it’s about affirming everyone’s freedom to fully and joyfully agree to their interactions. It’s through this affirmation that our spaces thrive with genuine, unreserved participation.


We’re committed to inclusivity. Our community is a tapestry of individuals from diverse racial, ethnic, and social backgrounds, including all gender identities and expressions. We encourage everyone to engage with empathy and curiosity, always asking rather than assuming someone’s identity or preferences.

Our space is and always will be wheelchair accessible, with multiple spaces for varying sensory needs.


No refunds will be given on ticket purchases. Address is provided to confirmed ticket holders after purchase. Wicked Eden is located on the south side of Columbus, approximately 10 minutes from downtown, and is one block away from a COTA bus stop.


Wicked Eden is operated by The Autonomy Project, a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to education, community building, and empowerment for individuals within the alternative sexuality community, sex work industry, and the LGBTQIA+ community. Our mission is to create a safe and inclusive space where individuals can freely express their sexuality and gender identity without fear of discrimination, judgment, or violence.
