Living in the Tension – 8/12

For our upcoming Living in the Tension gathering on Monday (August 12th), we will be sharing our thoughts about the LGBT issues that we see coming up on the horizon. With conversations about marriage equality commonly garnering the most attention in public circles, are there other issues that are being ignored or pushed to the margins? What is it that influences priorities when it comes to the rights and well-being of certain groups within the LGBT community being focused on or not? We will be meeting in Room 124 on 5255 N Ashland Ave. at 7pm.

If you’re available beforehand, we will be meeting at Lady Gregory’s at 5:15pm on 5260 N Clark St. to grab a bite to eat.

We hope to see you there!

Much love.
