Buying Clothes: A Safer Space Discussion

Shopping for clothes can be a thrill or a hassle. Even if conventional stores do carry our size, it might be stressful to set foot in the department where we'd really like to browse, or to ask for assistance from the staff. Meanwhile, several specialty manufacturers have sprung up in the past few years, offering alternative clothing options - but often at a high price. What have our recent clothing-obtaining experiences been like, and what resources have we discovered to help with the less pleasant (or more expensive) aspects?

Transit: A Safer Space Discussion

Whether it's getting stared at on the train, a license that doesn't match your presentation, learning how to ride a bike in a skirt in your late 20s, stations that are not disability-accessible, or basically everything about airport security, just getting around can be a problem when you're queer.

How do you navigate your travel? Are there means you just won't take, or only if you're in a group? What do you do when you can't? Is sitting backward on the train just not a thing that can happen? Come talk with us about getting around.
