Representation: A Safer Space Discussion

Trans issues and trans people are becoming more and more visible in the media. We're on television, we're in movies, we're the subject of both. From Chaz Bono to Caitlyn Jenner to Laverne Cox, gender variant people are everywhere. These people are the face of the trans community. Do you agree with the representation we have? How do you want to see yourself represented in the world?

Family and What It Means to You: A Safer Space Discussion



In the queer community, families come in all shapes and sizes, formed by blood, love or friendship. Chosen or gained through birthright alone. How do you craft a support system that will weather you through adversity? Who do you look to for guidance? Have their been any ways in which you find yourself without people to relate to, guide and nurture you? In thinking back to your current family, do you have any thoughts about starting one of your own? This topic is all about what family, community and environments in which to thrive mean to you.
