Assimilation: A Safe Space Discussion at a NEW LOCATION


Assimilation is a hot topic in queer circles. Let's talk about it. Some folks want to blend, "pass," or fit-in. Where does this trend come from? Other folks want to stick out. Why? What does assimilation for queer and trans* folks mean? Does it work for you? Does it not? Does it sometimes? What implications does it have for society? Is it something you want to challenge? If so, how?

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!

  1. all some of us want is to just fit in and be normal, and you all actually make it a lot harder than it has to be.
