Trans Figures in Entertainment

For the past few weeks we have been focusing on public figures or pieces of media who go and say bigoted things while creating content of some sort that we appreciate in other ways. Let's instead shift our focus to the media created by and for trans people and queer people. In this month containing Trans Day of Visibility, who is visible? Who is able to be visible? Who do we appreciate being visible? What media reflects ourselves? What doesn't? Whose voices are missing? What tropes would we appreciate radio silence from? Where can we find glimmers of ourselves in older media? What media was surprisingly uplifting?

More questions and conversations to come during the meeting to be sure.

Silly Question: What is one thing kept in your living space you want to be more visible in the GQC space (or Chicago, or the world depending on comfort)?
Wednesday, March 8th, 7:00pm to 9 pm 
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!
