Welcome to the online discussion group for GenderQueer Revolution, a national organization dedicated to empowering people of all genders, helping people to embrace the gift of gender in their own lives & in the lives of others, supporting & cultivating genderqueer, gender-gifted individuals & communities, uniquely gender-gifted art, spirituality, research, & academics, & educating & building bridges across trans, gendered, queer, & non-queer communities & beyond.
Have you ever felt.. * Like M, F, or even FTM and MTF aren't enough? And certainly not "gay," "straight," or "queer?" * Or that your gender changes by the minute, hour, day, or season? * That maybe you were meant to have more than one gender? * Ever feel that your gender isn't so clear cut? (Or that it falls right off the map?) * Tired of hearing, "You're just confused," when you already know who you are, or, you're comfortable with not knowing? * Does it ever bother you -or amuse you- when people say you're "too" "feminine" or "masculine," that you "look like a girl," or "a boy," whatever these words mean, with a tone that implies that that's a bad thing? * Ever wish people would just stop asking, whether sarcastically or seriously, when you're going to start hormones, have surgery, & "transition" with the assumption that these terms automatically apply to you? (They might, but that doesn't give others the right to assume).
Our stories tell us that genderqueer and gender non-conforming people need a safe haven, a uniquely genderqueer, gender-defying, gender-gifted, gender non-conforming, non-binary space. Here, "genderqueer" may or may not mean "trans." In GenderQueer Revolution community space no one will force you to choose a label. No one will oppose weekly, daily, or even hourly changes of name, pronouns, gender identity, gender expression, or style. You can choose to wear, play, or experiment with any gender configuration, revel in confusion, by choice or by circumstance, or not.
