Gender Talk: Being “Trans”
Friday, October 4, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
– What experiences are considered “universal” in the trans community, and what are considered unique?
– How do we make space for the diversity of experiences within the trans communities, even if these experiences may sometimes conflict?
– How did you explore your gender, and/ or how do you plan to explore your gender in the future?
Welcome to the first Gender Talk of the 2019-20 school year! In this session, we will discuss the experiences that informed our gender identities and the ways that we have explored our gender. We will focus on diversity in our communities, the way our experiences have affected the way we create and navigate our community, and the idea that there is no one way to be “trans.”
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, non-binary, 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.
