Medicine: A Safer Space Discussion

Last Friday, Medicare administration opened a form for comments about possibly updating their 31-year-old exclusion of trans* surgeries as 'experimental'. The following day they removed it. The American Medical Association considers treatment medically necessary, yet still every layperson seems to think they are qualified to judge what might be needed and what is not, while at the same time you may know more than your own doctor. Have you faced any problems, or found good support? What would you like to change?


Wednesday, April 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!
