Open Topic

Last week's post wasn't listed due to personal circumstances, but as was listed in the sidebar we discussed making friends. Tonight's meeting will have an open topic, and next Wednesday's meeting will be about New Year's resolutions and planning for what we'd like to see for GQC in the new year.

The silly question will be: "If you had to design a candle based on your (potential lack of) gender(s), what would it smell like?"

Wednesday,  December 21st, 7:00pm to 8:30pm
Center on Halsted, 2nd Floor (Room 202)
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!

Making Friends



Meeting people and making friends in the winter can be hard. Making friends, in general, can be hard. It takes practice and patience navigating and negotiating humans and intimacy of any kind. Sometimes the stakes can feel even higher when it is someone who is just a platonic friend. When do you tell a new cool person your pronouns, or do they already know them? Will work friends and queer friends mix well? Let's talk about friendships.

The silly question is: "What is a story about friendship you think about fondly?"
