Body Language: A Safer Space Discussion

Nonverbal communication forms the basis of many snap judgement and first impressions. Let's consider how the body language we use in our different cultures is read by those around us. Do you often find that you "manspread" on public transportation (please stop), tuck your hair behind your ears, or steeple your hands when you think? How do you commonly greet close friends versus strangers, and has this changed over time? Feel free to join us this Wednesday for our regular discussion group meeting to chat about this, and more. 

Also, next Sunday, August 21st, we are hosting a clothing swap from 2-4 pm at the Center on Halsted .(3656 N Halsted St, Chicago, Illinois 60613). Donations wishing to be made prior to the Swap can be coordinated with Genderqueer Chicago by emailing us at All clothes remaining after the Swap will be donated to The Brown Elephant.

Wednesday, August 17, 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
