About this Event
Our identities and experiences around gender and sexuality are individual and evolving. Our language for how we understand and express ourselves should be too.
It’s been a recurring conversation lately in both our TQNC meetings and amongst friends that even within our queer community, we don’t all share the same language and understanding for how we talk about our experiences and identities with regards to gender and sexuality — and often in day-to-day life, it can feel uncomfortable to ask even the people we care about, when we worry we might be perceived as ignorant or inconsiderate.
So for this workshop, we’re inviting folks to join a discussion in a space that’s intentionally open-minded to uncertainties and mutual learning. An opportunity to share your experiences, ask questions, learn from each other, make mistakes without shaming, try on new language for yourself, and build allyship amongst our own queer community.
The location is in Downtown Boston, details are available with RSVP.
as with our other community events, this will be a sober event in a space that welcomes all ages, is mobility accessible, and where we won’t have childcare available, but kids are welcome to come. light snacks will be served.
When neighborhood and City community meetings are spaces where we have to invest mental energy into whether we can safely exist as our whole selves in front of neighbors and strangers, showing up can be uncomfortable, and it’s hard to fully engage.
We’ve founded The Queer Neighborhood Council to create a space where LGBTQ+ community members and our allies can learn about neighborhood and Boston matters, be visible to and connect with our elected and City officials, and collectively organize for the City services, support, and changes we need, just like any other resident.
Yes, sometimes that’s queer-specific issues — but it’s also housing, transportation, our kids’ education, the upkeep of our sidewalks, construction disruptions, and rats. All the normal day-to-day stuff of living in Boston.
