Race: A Safer Space Discussion

People of color come in all shades and from all backgrounds. Our myriad cultural narratives shape the America that we know today. Although we contribute so much to American culture, our issues often go dismissed, our communities needs unfulfilled and our stories untold. But what happens when you're a queer person of color in America? Are your needs fulfilled even less? What about being trans and a person of color? Is your existence even acknowledged? How do you cope with a culture that does everything in it's power to work against your self actualization? How are you able to find community when you're told you have none?

Wednesday's topic will be part of an ongoing discussion about race, queerness and transness.


Wednesday, May 27, 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!
