Costumes: A Safer Space Discussion

It's that time of year again, where you get to choose between putting on a costume or taking one off, and the way other people see it isn't necessarily the same as you do.

Wednesday, October 30, 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!

Bathrooms: a safer space discussion

We all gotta go sometime, and sometimes, we gotta go in a public (or shared) restroom. Though we may cross our fingers for the unisex single-stall, the majority of facilities today are strictly binary. How do you deal with doing your business in a binary world?

Body Modification: A Safer Space Discussion

Piercings, ink, scars, implants, other things (and not to forget estrogen or testosterone); how do your body mods have special meanings to you? What new ones might you be planning, are they to mark anything special? For those who don't have or want any, is there a reason, or are you just not interested? Or perhaps you once had one that you didn't like and later removed... Come and spill your ink-covered, hole-riddled secrets.

Geekery Part Two: Revenge of Geekery! A Safer Space Discussion

Since we didn't finish up last week...

"Being a geek is all about being honest about what you enjoy and not being afraid to demonstrate that affection. It means never having to play it cool about how much you like something. It’s basically a license to proudly emote on a somewhat childish level rather than behave like a supposed adult." -Simon Pegg

Most of us are a geek about something. Let's get together to talk about the things we truly enjoy, the communities involved, and how it plays into our queerness (or doesn't). 

Wednesday, October 9th, 7:00pm to 8:15pm
Center on Halsted, 2nd Floor (ask for room number at reception desk)
