“Gender in Public”
Join the Rainbow Commission, Mystic LGBTQ+ Youth Support Network (Queer Mystic), Arlington Human Rights Commission, Arlington Council on Aging, and True Story Theater to explore experiences around gender in public. Through interactive story-telling theatre community members are offered a space to have their experiences and perspectives reflected back with respect. Come share or it’s fine to come and just witness.
The performance will be followed by a discussion of November Ballot Question 3 regarding equal rights for transgender people in public accommodations. (Public accommodations are any places we go between home and work or school, including stores, restaurants, hotels, medical offices, public transportation, public parks, movie theaters, and more)
