Assumptions: A Safer Space Discussion


Regardless of who you are, people are going to make assumptions about you: your personality, your tastes, your identity. Some of these assumptions we may view as reasonable (that i'm about to allude about assumptions about gender, for example) and some less so (such as ACTUAL assumptions about gender). Let's get together and talk about the ways that assumptions affect us, positively and negatively. What are some assumptions you find yourself repeatedly facing? How do you deal with these assumptions?

Wednesday, January 30th, 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!th
