TransQueerLA Beach Day

Queer and Trans Beach Takeover!
 
The bois of Toolbox Trans LA: A Transmasculine Social Support Space got to talking about Pride and we thought, “How fucking awesome would it be to queer the fuck out of the beach and whatnot!”
 
Sometimes Pride just isn’t what we want. So let’s create an intentional space for trans, gender nonconforming, two-spirit, and intersex folks. While allies, loved ones, and lovers are welcome, we really want to center these folks. Let’s kiki! Let’s swim! Let’s share stories. Let’s revel in our joy!
 
Potluck style! BYOstuff. Let’s coordinate carpools! Maybe comment with what you’ll bring!
 
Let’s do this!
If you can offer a ride to folks, sign-up here: https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/1ebjsIZn0k8JJu_iTgCwl8HRRmjIc-YYMwrLedFeIjMI/edit#gid=0

Toolbox Discussion: June 23rd, 2016

Hey peeps! Time for another discussion!

This week’s topic:

Unpacking desirability politics.

We initially wanted to talk about dating and relationships but we realized we needed to take a step back. So many of us have either been told or shown that we are somehow undesirable; that people wouldn’t love our trans bodies. So let’s disrupt that narrative and take steps toward reclaiming our own desirability.

If you can’t make it to the discussion, you can google hangout with us toolboxtransla@gmail.com.
