Joy: A Safer Space Discussion

With the holiday season upon us, it feels like an appropriate time to discuss where we find joy in our lives. Life as a genderqueer or any other type of transgender person can be difficult, but we are all capable of finding joy. Do we revel in our work, our friendships, our family life? Where is joy for us?

Gendered Affection: A Safer Space Discussion.

How to greet someone is deeply rooted in one's culture. Do you share hands or hug? What about kisses on the cheek? How many? The etiquette can be complex to begin with, and there are also sometimes differences based on gender. How you physically express affection can be part of your gender presentation. Come join us tonight for a discussion on how we negotiate new rules for when (and if) we let someone in our personal bubble.

Surviving the Holidays: A Safer Space Discussion

The holidays are right around the corner and for many transfolk, this season is filled with fear and dread.

Let's talk about the best ways to get through each situation.
