Gender Talk: Our Families & Our Self-Care

December 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm

GenderTalk_ConversationBubbles_websiteBefore the Winter break, come chat with us about navigating our identities with our families.

Gender Talk is a monthly discussion group for trans+ members of U of T. We welcome all members of U of T who identify as trans, transsexual, transgender, genderqueer, non-binary, or who are questioning their gender identity to come meet with other members of U of T and talk about topics that matter to you.

We meet every first Friday of the month, in room 421 (the lounge) at 21 Sussex Ave.

This is the last Gender Talk discussion of this semester and the 2016 year. Join us on January 13th, 2017 for the first Gender Talk discussion of 2017!

This month we are exploring the theme “Our Families & Our Self-Care”:

– How do we navigate our identities with our families to ensure our safety & well-being?
– Where do we find strength and/or strategies when trying to speak with our families about our identities?
– What are the hopes and fears for your families, present and futures?

LOCATION: Room 421 (Lounge), 21 Sussex Avenue


Gender Talk is a *new* monthly conversation café for trans+ students at U of T. We welcome all members of U of T who identify as trans, transgender, transsexual, genderqueer, or who are questioning their gender identity to come together to talk about the issues you want to talk about. Connect with other students and guest facilitators as we share our thoughts, experiences and questions.

This is an open drop-in conversation café for anyone interested in attending. We encourage everyone to show up at 12:00 pm, if you can. At that time, the facilitator will introduce themselves and encourage everyone to share their name. After that, the facilitator will guide us in a conversation, though the direction really depends on the people present. The conversation wraps up at 1:30 pm, but students are encouraged to remain in the lounge to hang out, chat informally and enjoy the remaining snacks.
