Gender Identity Drop-In Support Group
August 20 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm, Free
WHEN: Tuesday, August 20, 2019
WHERE: AANE Office, 51 Water Street, Watertown, MA, 02472
HOST: Erik H
SUGGESTED DONATION: Up to $5. You can pre-pay online (click the green “Register” button, below), or you can bring between zero and five dollars, in cash. No one will be turned away (or treated differently) for inability to donate. We encourage you to attend, regardless of your ability to donate.
WHAT: This group is for autistic adults who identify as transgender, who are questioning their gender identity, or who question gender roles. Many of our members identify as transgender, nonbinary, genderfluid, and other identities under the trans umbrella. Autistic gender-nonconforming people are welcome, as are those who feel uncomfortable with societal gender roles. We aim to be inclusive.
Please join us on the third Tuesday of the month, for our monthly peer support group. Meet other people, hear one another’s stories, and share the unique concerns and perspectives that come with these shared identities and experiences. This group is led by a peer moderator who identifies as autistic and transgender.
WHO: This space is primarily intended for trans (and questioning) autistic people. Generally speaking, cisgender (non-trans) and allistic (non-autistic) people (including partners, friends, and family members) should not attend.
Please register by Monday, August 19, 2019
(Please note that AANE reserves the right to cancel this event if the minimum number of registrants (3) is not met by the deadline.)
