For our upcoming Living in the Tension gathering on Monday, May 5th, we’ll be discussing what it means to be a representing or “token” member of a minority group within various social settings. What is it like to be the only trans person in the room? Or the only female? Or the only Christian? Or the only Asian? Do you feel a responsibility to represent your minority group? How do you deal with offensive or ignorant questions or comments? We will be meeting at 7pm in Room 124 on 5255 N Ashland Avenue.
If you’re available beforehand, we will meeting at Jerry’s Sandwiches on 5419 N Clark St. at 5:15pm to grab a bite to eat and hang out.
We hope to see you there!
