Safer Space for Trans/Genderqueer People

  • contact:  tgqsaferspace@wiscon.net

In response to a member request, we are pleased to provide one room on the sixth floor as designated space for genderqueer and transpeople to come together and dialogue openly about their ideas, experiences, feelings, and so forth. This space is specifically for trans, non-cis, and genderqueer identifying attendees. This space is not for anyone who identifies as cisgender (even cis queer people). The WisCon committee asks that all members respect the use of this space. Body policing or harassment of any kind will not be tolerated (see WisCon’s Code of Conduct for more information). In the past this space offered readings, handouts, and a variety of snacks (including gluten-free/vegan). Additionally, we try to set up a time for genderqueer/trans folk to meet and come together as a group at least once during the convention.

Since this is a relatively space, we want to hear your ideas about how to make this space work for you. What would you like to see happen?  Contact us at the email above!
