It was nice meeting you guys at our table and I hope that the emails got out to all of you who are interested in the club. As of right now, all of them went through but Sophie. If you happen to see this Sophie (whose not the Sophie in the contact us), please email ______ at gmail.com if you are interested in getting in contact with me.
As for people who are visiting the website from the flyer or heard of it through other means, Welcome! This website covers a variety of TNBI, LGBTQIA and intersectional issues which you can explore. Some of them are lacking in information, especially intersectional issues like racism, sexism, xenophobia, etc. but for LGBTQIA topics we have a good selection of things to look into.
Update on Meetings:
Activism—1st meeting— May 2nd, Monday 1-2pm, classroom: TBD, subject to change
Support— 1st meeting— projected to be late Spring 2016 and at the latest Fall 2016
Plus, here’s a basic run down of the club. If you read the poster, then you’ve already seen this.
This may include a variety of initiatives such as: bringing awareness and ultimately banning all exclusionary signs from locker rooms (ex. “Women Only: Past This Point”) which alienate non-binary and trans identities which are forced to use that space for safety, to avoid harassment and/or odd looks. Another major step the club is pushing for is the addition of all gender multi-stalled restrooms for 1 story of every multi-story building on campus. Our efforts may also include the inclusion of pronouns on documentation as well as work in the community to fight anti-trans, non-binary and intersex legislation, in addition, to any other meaningful needs for the community that have to be addressed.
Education comes into play on the website, speakers, panels, workshops, etc. For now, most of the education falls on the website.
This serves as a place to educate allies as well as fellow community members, in addition, to providing another way to connect those part of the community.
For those who want to get involved with the club, one way is to submit content or work with submitters to the website.
Writer: a person who submit original content on TNBI, LGBTQIA or intersectionality. This may be analyzing the coming out process: safety and dangers, stigma surrounding detransitioning, poverty among the queer and trans black community, etc. You may require research and opinions from reputable resources to solidify your research. As a writer, you may work alone or in a group of people for larger projects.
Editor: someone who works with writers to improve their content grammatically, structurally, etc. An editor can choose to produce content themselves while also editing fellow writer’s content.
Artists: They can submit content as long as it relates to TNBI, LGBTQIA, and/or intersectionality. An artist can have their name and/or pseudonym, contact information, and/or website listed with their work if they wish so.
- Non-fiction (ex. coming out stories, family/friend experience)
- Short stories
- Stage plays/screen plays
- Other literature
- Visual art
- Arts and crafts
Researcher: This will usually be a person who looks into books, movies, TV, and animation on TNBI, LGBTQIA or intersectional subjects. The person will write a summary of the major points of the book and/or discuss intriguing concepts relating to the source material. As for how closely it relates to the TNBI, LGBTQIA, or intersection subjects: it must address the topic directly. Simply having a character or a brief mention of the subject does not count.
- To provide the resources to transgender, non-binary, intersex and intersectional identities.
- To allow a space for non-traditional identities to vent and tackle life one day at a time
The support group is meant for transgender, non-binary, intersex, questioning, gender non-conforming, and emotional support friends.
