Exclusion: A Safer Space Discussion

Sometimes we may be excluded from things, because of the gender someone thinks you are (...whether they're right or not) or trans* status or disability or any number of other things. Even if we're not explicitly excluded, it can be implicit — being uncomfortable, or ignored, or otherwise just not fitting in. How has this affected you? What makes you feel left out? Is there anything you'e been able to do about it?

Wednesday, June 26th 
7:00pm to 8:15pm 
Center on Halsted, second floor (ask front desk for room number)

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!
