Being an Example: A Safe Space Discussion















In recent weeks we've talked allies and our own role models. This week, let's discuss the examples we try to set for others and the pressures we face.

Have there been times when you've been a positive role model for others, or tried to be? As a trans* or queer person, do you feel that you ought to set an example? What would it mean to you to make a positive contribution? In situations where you are visible, do you feel pressured to set an example or play a certain kind of role?

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!
