April meet up and Trans Week of Empowerment

March 31st was Transgender Day of Visibility and kicked off more than a week of events around the country focused on awareness of the successes of the Trans* communities. From Trans*Hack Chicago and The Trans 100 list unveiling, to events right here in San Diego County.

Some of the highlights:
Tonight at The Center in Hillcrest is Trans Day of Empowerment 6-9pm.
Monday starts a full week of visibility at SDSU with events every day including a flag raising, panel, and film screening – check it out at http://www.facebook.com/events/240028162849386
The Transgender Leadership Summit takes place April 11-13.

And of course we are holding the Genderqueer San Diego meetup this Sunday, April 6th. As always, you are welcome to bring in any questions or topics that you want to discuss. Allies and anyone who wants to be part of the conversation are always welcome.

    About GQSD

    We are a community of people whose identities range from non-binary transgender, to genderqueer, agender/genderless, neutrois, androgynous, bigender, two-spirit, genderbender, genderfluid, genderblender, and any other gender non-conforming identity. Creating a genderqueer space in San Diego enables people to explore their own non-binary gender identities. Equally important, it helps both the cisgender and binary transgender communities start to understand genderqueer experience. It is one way to begin to address binary privilege. Our goal is to form an intentional community, built on anti-oppression principles, that is safe for everyone - whatever their gender identity, presentation, race, class, educational level, ability, mental health status, age, nationality, ethnicity, employment status, etc.
