Gender Talk: Conversations About Racism
Friday, November 29, 2019 @ 12:00 pm - 1:30 pm
– What feelings and emotions come up around conversations about race, and how do we navigate them?
– What kind of conversations do we find ourselves engaging in around race and racism, and how are we engaging in them?
– What is our goal in having these conversations?
Conversations about racism often cause discomfort, in many different ways, for many different people. In this session of Gender Talk, we will be discussing the ways that we engage in these conversations about race and racism, particularly as members of the trans community.
This discussion was built as a collaboration between SGDO work-studies Mar, Lev, and Oreoluwa, and the session will be co-facilitated by Mar and Lev.
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.
