Monday May 23 Living in the Tension

For tonight’s Living in the Tension gathering, Jennifer Carr will be joining us as a guest speaker to share about her journey with her gender diverse child. Jennifer is an author, blogger, public speaker, and advocate for gender diverse individuals. She is the proud mother of a child who started to socially transition to live into her gender shortly before her 6th birthday. In 2010, Jennifer had the book Be Who You Are published to be a resource for individuals to peer into the life of a child who does not identify with their birth gender. The book was designed to open the hearts and minds of all people on the subject of gender diverse children (which includes transgender, gender variant, gender fluid, gender queer and any other identification outside of what is considered traditional gender roles). Along with her advocacy work, Jennifer also created the first local gender diverse play group for kids in the Chicagoland area. We’ll be meeting at 7pm at:
5255 N. Ashland Ave.
Room 120
Chicago, IL 60640
We hope to see you there :)
Much love.

Don’t Miss Out!
