A Discussion on Masculinity within Queer/Trans Communities of Color (Nov 20)

Posted By QWOC+ Boston on November 5th, 2010

In the next installment of the QWOC Talk series, QWOC+ Boston will be facilitating a discussion to understand and challenge our ideas of masculinity. We welcome participants from all parts of the gender spectrum to join the conversation and share your experience(s) with masculinity, whether as trans men, studs, bois, high femmes, gay boys, in-betweeners, all or none of the above. Together we can work to understand and move towards transforming these ideas within ourselves and within our communities.

FORMAT: The discussion will be held in workshop format; we will open as a larger group then break into smaller affinity groups (twice within the larger discussion) in order to build a deeper understanding of normative concepts of masculinity within our communities. Our aim is to highlight and redefine these perceptions while working to understand our personal identity in relation to the messages we receive from society about masculinity.

Saturday November 20th | 2-5PM
