Harassment: A Safer Space Discussion



Ideally, no one should have to deal with harassment, but in this world, harassment is reality no one can ignore. Harassment can come from a stranger on the street, or from a family member, or from a friend. It can be a sign of hate, fear, or simple ignorance. Even those who are lucky enough not to have struggled with harassment have struggled with the fear of harassment. How does harassment affect you in your life? How do you deal with it? 

Wednesday, February 25, 7:00pm to 8:15pm
Center on Halsted, 2nd Floor (ask for room number at reception desk)
3656 N. Halsted St. 
 
Genderqueer Chicago is as safe a space as we can make it. To help with this, we have some working agreements that we would like all who come to meetings to keep in mind while within our safe space meetings. Please check out our working agreements here.

Safe space meetings are strictly closed to researchers and reporters in their professional capacities. Meetings are open to anyone else wanting to talk and think about gender! For more info, give us a shout at genderqueerchicago@gmail.com!

Games: A Safer Space Discussion

On a table, on a computer, or running jumping climbing trees, any game with characters (and many without) leave room for self-expression and queering the narrative. Many current developers, online and off, are writing games with explicitly queer settings and narrative. How has your gender shaped your play, and how has it shaped you back?

Orientation: A Safer Space Discussion


We all know, of course, that orientation and gender are two different things. Some of us may identify strongly with a particular orientation, and some may not. What is your experience with regards to orientation? What is its importance to you? How has it intersected or not intersected with your journeys through gender?

Multiplicity: A Safer Space Discussion



There are many ways in which we can feel like we are more than one person. Maybe you're one person to some people and another to others. Maybe you've changed so much over the years you're no longer the same person. Maybe who you are depends on how you wake up feeling that morning. In what ways do you feel like you have more than one self? How do you feel about that? How do you express it?

Exchange: A Safer Space Discussion with Genderqueer Milwaukee

Stop, Collaborate and ListenHealthy communities are built on the concept of exchange. Exchange of experiences, ideas and resources all help to strengthen the ties that bind us together. This week Genderqueer Chicago & Milwaukee join forces to discuss the ways in which this powerful concept expresses itself, on every level, in our transgender and gender non-conforming communities.
