Multiplicity: A Safer Space Discussion



There are many ways in which we can feel like we are more than one person. Maybe you're one person to some people and another to others. Maybe you've changed so much over the years you're no longer the same person. Maybe who you are depends on how you wake up feeling that morning. In what ways do you feel like you have more than one self? How do you feel about that? How do you express it?

Wednesday, January 21, 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.

Exchange: A Safer Space Discussion with Genderqueer Milwaukee

Stop, Collaborate and ListenHealthy communities are built on the concept of exchange. Exchange of experiences, ideas and resources all help to strengthen the ties that bind us together. This week Genderqueer Chicago & Milwaukee join forces to discuss the ways in which this powerful concept expresses itself, on every level, in our transgender and gender non-conforming communities. 

Wednesday, January 14, 7:00pm to 8:15pm

Symbols: A Safer Space Discussion

A plethora of queer identities leads to a plethora of symbols, often more than one for the same thing. We use them to reveal ourselves (to the select few who recognise), to focus on, to decorate. How have you used them, how have they shaped you?

Authenticity: a Safer Space Discussion

Chances are, all of us have thought about authenticity at some point or another. It's at issue in a lot of the decisions we make and the language we use to talk about them. So what is authenticity?  When have you felt authentic? When have you felt inauthentic? How important is authenticity to you?
