Costumes: a safe space discussion


"Once a year, most of the population put on a costume, while the rest take it off." It's a special Halloween edition of Genderqueer Chicago! Participants are invited to come in costume (or out of it) and bring their thoughts about what dressing up for Halloween means to them. PLEASE ALLOW FOR EXTRA TRAVEL TIME as the festivities may already be starting on Halsted.

Wednesday, October 31, 7:00pm to 8:15pm
Center on Halsted, 2nd Floor (ask for room number at reception desk)
3656 N. Halsted St.

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!


AFTER THE DISCUSSION: Instead of our usual post-safe-space hangout, we will be heading to the In-One-Ear Open Mic at the Heartland Cafe, at 7000 N Glenwood Ave just north of the Morse red line stop. Cover is normally $3 but, for their Halloween show, anyone who comes in a costume gets in for free.

For anyone who might consider getting onstage, the crowd at In-One-Ear is very welcoming and they love performers of all kinds!
