Gender Talk: Our Families & Our Self-Care
Friday, December 2, 2016 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
– 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?
Join us on Friday, December 2nd for the last Gender Talk discussion of the 2016 year. We will be back on January 13th! Until then, we will be chatting about navigating our identities within the contexts of our familial relationships (whatever family means to you!).
Location: Room 421, 21 Sussex Avenue
Gender Talk is a 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.
