Bad Dates: A Safer Space Discussion

Many humans (including genderqueer ones!) go on dates with other humans, genderqueer or not. Unfortunately, sometimes those dates go badly. Let's talk about those bad dates (and maybe some good ones) and see what we can learn from them and how we can avoid bad or potentially toxic relationships as queer folk navigating romance.


Wednesday, October 1, 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!

Art: A Safer Space Discussion

We're all creative, whether or not we try; even performing a gender (or trying not to) can demand it. What things do you create, what art do you consume? How has it helped you understand and express your gender, your self?

Connecting the “T” to GLBT - A Trans 101 with Nikk Selik

Our friends at Mancave (a trans-masculine discussion group that also meets at the Center on Halsted) are putting on a Trans 101 — one actually lead by a trans person! As it's a introduction, please invite friends, family, potential allies, anyone who'd benefit from an overview.

The “T” is not silent.

Identifying as Gay, Lesbian or Bisexual does not automatically make someone an Ally for those who are Transgender. Believe it or not, Transgender people can face ignorance or misunderstanding even from those who are Gay, Lesbian or Bisexual. As a community, our strength is our connection to each other. When there is a gap between the "GLB" and "T", our community is impacted as a whole...

The good news is that we can, together, bridge that gap. Knowledge is the most powerful tool we have to build connections.

Join Nikk Selik in this engaging workshop and discussion on Transgender identity.

7:00 pm Friday October 24th
Center on Halsted
3656 N Halsted St, Chicago, IL
