LBGTQ+ MEET-UP: Comics & More!
*Allies & Mature Teens Welcome*
Join us in sharing and learning about comics & pop-culture,
with a focus on gay and transgender communities.
We are a place for nerdy people to speak freely and without judgment. Good intentions are always assumed, and empathetic understanding is readily offered.
It is likely that we will discuss some topics that may be uncomfortable, so we encourage everyone to be mindful of themselves and their well-being.
Please review the Notes for a Good LBGTQ+ and Allies Meet-Up at the bottom of this post.
ALL WELCOME, JUST BE NICE!!
Saturday September 30th, 4p-6p

Notes for a Good LBGTQ+ and Allies Meet-Up
Confidentiality! Our discussions will get into sensitive topics and personal stories will be shared, so the Vegas Rule is in effect: No sharing of personal details outside of this group. It’s OK to use general and vague references, but not specific names, etc.
Find the Positive It may take some work, but purposefully finding a positive or constructive way to approach a difficulty is essential to growth. We’ll help each other.
Ouch/Oops If something hurtful is said, saying “Ouch,” can let that be known. “Oops”
acknowledges the error and opens the way for considerate correction.
You Speak for Yourself We all belong to many groups but we are not their sole representatives. One may share their own experiences but they do not speak for an entire community.
Don’t Yuck Their Yum Everybody’s different, so we don’t pass judgement. We’re all adults, ok?
Ask for Direction, Not an Explanation It’s not the job of the oppressed to educate the oppressor. Before you ask a question that can be answered by a websearch, consider if you’re asking the best question.
Yield the Floor Folks who speak more freely must actively let others have a turn.
