Monthly Meetings

Previous Monthly Meetings Archive

TransCollaborations meets twice a month on the 2nd and 4th Sunday. Unless otherwise noted, we meet at the Women’s Resource & Action Center (130 N. Madison St)

A few Notes:

Film Screenings are open for everyone to attend. We recognize that representations of trans* folk in mainstream movies are usually problematic. Screening a film does not mean that we endorse it as a “good” movie. We will discuss the films after the viewing.

Discussions are open to transgender, genderqueer, and allies of the trans* community only. We follow GenderQueer Chicago’s rules for safe space in our discussions.
