Academia: A Safer Space Discussion

College can be a more comfortable place to explore gender and sexuality, and a large portion of queer theory comes from its halls. Alternately, academia can be about people rather than for them, insulated from the 'real world' and privilege theory over lived experience. It can be completely unavailable or essentially required (while still perhaps requiring extreme debt). Has it helped or hindered you, why did you chose to go or not to go (if it was even a choice at all)? How might this have changed? Enroll in our discussion section.

Wednesday, July 24, 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!
