Living in the Tension Gathering – Mon. Dec. 10

We will be hosting our last Living in the Tension gathering of the year this upcoming Monday, December 10th at 7pm. A friend of the foundation will be sharing some of her thoughts about a book she recently read, The End of Sexual Identity, by Jannell Williams Paris and we will take some time to discuss our thoughts on sexuality and identity.

The gathering will be hosting at our usual spot in Room 120 on 5255 N. Ashland Ave. in Chicago.

Hope to see you there!

Much love.
