Living in the Tension this Monday (4/20)

Marin Foundation

 

At this Monday’s Living in the Tension gathering, we’ll be talking about gender, how we experience it and express it. As a jumping off point, we’ll listen to a 15 minute audio clip from This American Life of an interview with a man who took high doses of testosterone, and how it changed the way he interacted with the world. 

And as always, we will meet at 7 pm at 5255 N Ashland Ave in Room 124. Also, for anyone who’s interested, we meet for dinner beforehand at 5:15 pm at Lady Gregory’s on 5260 N Clark St, right around the corner.

Hope to see you there!
