Gender Talk: Media
Friday, October 6, 2017 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
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 each other and talk about topics that matter to us.
Come join us in this month’s discussion of how trans people are represented in media, in all of its form, such as books, films, television shows, the news and more.
– How are trans people portrayed in media? How do you feel about some of the examples that you can think of?
– In what ways does the portrayal of trans people in media affect our communities?
– What kind of trans representation do YOU want to see more of?
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, non-binary or who are questioning their gender identity to come together to talk about the issues that you want to talk about. Connect with other students and guest facilitators as we share our thoughts, experiences and questions!
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 snacks.
