Allyship: a safe space discussions.

We're all affected by various contours of power and privilege in our society, both within the queer community and without. Some examples i've been thinking about lately: non/binary identities, masculinity/femininity, dis/ability, race, class, education level, cis/trans, occupational status, the list goes on and on. Folks often talk about how they are allies for this or that, but rarely break down what that means. Let's talk about allyship. How can we convey our stories and our needs in a way that allows others to effectively express allyship? And, i think more importantly, how can we cultivate openness and allyship within ourselves? Come chat!

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!
