Photographs: A Safer Space Discussion

Selfie culture is kind of neat because it puts the subject of the picture in control of if and how they want to be seen. Part of promoting the visibility of the genderqueer and nonbinary community is negotiating how we feel about us being... well, visible. 
This coming meeting we plan on sharing our thoughts about:
  • older existing photos
  • how context affects how we feel about being in pictures
  • being photographed versus selfies
Also, we are planning on having more events outside the Center on Halsted. We have the Vegas Rule for inside the Center, we should talk about what kind of policy we would like regarding taking pictures at outside events and how to affirm consent or not.

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!
