Pride: A Safer Space Discussion


Pride is upon us. While many LGBT people climb aboard floats and raise the rainbow flags in June, others are less comfortable in the midst of the celebration. Pride month can be a complicated time for people working through gender stuff. Let's talk about what that means for us. What does it mean to have pride in a fiercely normative society? Do you have pride? Do you not? Is it easy to cultivate your pride? What is the mainstream conception of this word? How is your experience similar? How does it differ?

Come share your thoughts, stories, and questions.

Wednesday, June 12th 
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!
