Genderqueer Chicago Announces New Meeting Space/ Collaboration with Access Living!

For many months now, we've been looking for a second home for our weekly meetings. We're thrilled to announce we have found one at Access Living (115 W. Chicago Ave.).

Access Living is...

a nonresidential Center for Independent Living for people with all types of disabilities. Access Living programs and services promote the empowerment, independence and inclusion of people with all types of disabilities in every aspect of community life. -Access Living website

From now on, we'll be meeting on the 2nd and 4th Wednesdays of the month at Access Living. We'll continue to meet at the Gerber/Hart Library (1127 W. Granville) on the 1st and 3rd Wednesdays. Check the calendar on this blog, for the most up-to-date information about meeting times and spaces. Our first meeting at Access Living is on November 10th.

We're so excited to collaborate with Access Living, not simply because they're a fantastic organization but also because we believe that disability communities and gender-variant communities can find common cause on so many issues. Further, we hope that its central location will make GqC accessible to people all over the city.

To learn more about the intersections of disability and gender-variant issues, start with trans and disability activist and writer, Eli Clare.
