Monthly Meetup – April
Friday, April 14, 5-7 p.m.
Smokey Row Coffee
1910 Cottage Grove Ave, Des Moines, IA 50314
Meet LGBTQ and ally students from nearby schools and help us create a “transition closet” – an opportunity for students to find something new that aligns with their gender identity. Join us to help plan the project in a safe & affirming space. If you have new or lightly-used clothing to donate, please bring it! We’ll spend part of the meeting on the service project and the other part getting to know one another.
Stories help shape our perceptions of the world, including how we perceive gender. But our society’s conventional gender norms, so often depicted in the media we consume, don’t tell the whole story. Young audiences need access to stories that paint a more complete picture of gender and reflect their lived experiences.
