TRANSportation TOMORROW!



Date:
Monday, November 30, 2009
Time:
5:30pm - 8:30pm
Location:
The Illustrious Chicago Red Line El Train

Ever been on a crowded train, suffocating with twenty or thirty strangers, keeping your eyes on your shoes because you're too afraid to look up? To look up and see all those questioning eyes, and feel yourself crumble under their gaze?
Well this is the train for you.

Allies and Genderfunnies, join in the fun as GqC shakes up the Red Line with some surprising conversations.

We will meet downtown at the JACKSON Red Line Stop at 5:30pm above ground. Bring your favorite copy of anything written about gender/ gender variance. Don't have one? We'll provide you with materials.

This action requires no acting skills. You will simply start a conversation with another participant about gender on the train. And everyone around you will do the same thing. We'll bring some literature for you.

See you at Jackson!

  2. This was awesome! I happened to be on the Red Line on my way home when someone sat down next to me. I was looking out the window when I noticed someone then sit down in front of me and turn around and start talking to the person next to me about a trans book. Being a gay man my ears perked up...then the train erupted with trans people raising their hands. I was amazed at everyone making a statement and making themselves be KNOWN. Great Job!
