Out of the (Gender) Box
Out of the (Gender) Box is a bi-weekly discussion group that provides safe space for folks who identify outside of (or don’t quite fit into) the ‘male’ and ‘female’ boxes assigned to us by society. Discussion topics focus on the many different ways in which gender impacts and shapes our lives and what it is like to exist as individuals and a community that refuse to be confined to boxes that we didn’t create. People of all gender identities and expressions are welcome to attend. Meetings are held every other Tuesday, 7-8 p.m.
Built upon the concept of celebrating people of all gender identities and expressions, Trans.lation provides support and community-building opportunities for transgender people and their loved ones of all ages. The Center has long seen gaps in services for the Southern Nevada transgender community. Trans.lation was developed in response to this pressing need and continues to provide much-needed support and visibility to the transgender and gender non-conforming members of our community. Fridays, 5:30-6:30 pm.
