Science: a safe space discussion

Scientists are desperately trying to come up with explanations for why people are the way they are with regard to gender. Though it seems like such discoveries may prove to some cis-gendered people: "Look, we exist, and here's how," it can also feel alarming that science is trying to classify things which can themselves, feel isolated and succinct. Do developments in scientific understanding of gender play a role in your own perspective? Are such developments more a boon or bane to understanding and dealing with gender in our society?

Center on Halsted (3656 North Halsted)

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!
