For directions to the Summit, go to the USC website.

This month we will discuss how we as genderqueer, gender-fabulous, gender-gifted people integrate the rest of our lives with our genders. We might also talk about how ___-queerness goes beyond gender-, but into all the other elements of who we are, including race, ethnicity, philosophy, class, religion, age, language, and creed.

How do we process reexamination and recreation of our life narratives, gender and otherwise? The stories that others assign to us (and that sometimes we assign to ourselves), the details of supreme importance to us in our narratives for whatever conscious or unconscious reasons, the areas that divert from or align with well-known or well-rehearsed narratives - how do we make sense of it all? How do we value our unique narratives without shame and fear?

The Los Angeles Chapter of GenderQueer Revolution usually has Coffeetalk at Cafe Tropical, (on the corner of Sunset and Parkman in Silverlake), a friendly Cuban bakery with some of the best coffee in LA in a large, comfortable back room where we can freely talk, connect, and find sustenance for our gender-gifted souls.

Suggested donation of $2

Can't make it to Southern California? Whether or not you have a GQR chapter in your location, we want to invite you to the GQR-LA chat! We have been developing even better ways in which we can include our worldwide community, such as telephone conference, video conference, various kinds of IM, and so forth. Do you have an idea for how we can make GQR-LA's Coffeetalk more interactive and inclusive? Let us know! We want to launch our new interactive chat as soon as possible, and our Tech Team wants to hear from YOU.

More details of all the exciting developments, events, and other things GQR has planned for 2007, coming soon, or write us at Interact with other uniquely gender-gifted individuals at The GQR MySpace and at our online discussion group.
