On Sun, Sept 29, Gender Warriors will be giving a presentation which acts as a beginner's guide to trans* identities.

Change to our General Meeting Schedule

Gender Warriors is currently testing a new format for our general meetings. We will still be having weekly meetings at the same time, but every other week we will have a movie or game night rather than a group discussion. We hope this will allow members to let off some steam and relax during the casual meeting sessions so we can get into more serious topics during the regular discussion meetings.

Last week we had watched To Wong Foo, Thanks for Everything, Julie Newmar, a 1995 gender bender film about three drag queens (with varying degrees of trans* identity) who get sidetracked in small town America on their way to a pageant. This coming week will have our regular discussion meeting.




Upcoming movies include Zerophilia, Boys Don't Cry, and Soldier's Girl. Topics for discussion will include relationships and dating, coming out in the workplace, and plans for the 2nd Annual Evansville Transgender Day of Remembrance.  (Pictures from 2012's TDOR)





If you would like to vote on what movies we watch or post ideas for what we discuss in meetings, head over to our facebook page or email us at genderwarriors@gmail.com.
