Role, Expression, Identity: A Safer Space Discussion

As gender-conscious people, we are well acquainted both with how it can be performative and when it is innate. We each have our own identities, flexible and difficult to pin down as they may be, but how they reach the world is through our actions and the roles through which people interpret them. How do those roles shape you back? What might mediate your expression? Do people see your identity as you would like, or are they confused or mistaken? Come share your thoughts.

Wednesday, October 3, 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!
