Advocacy Through Art – May 22, 2023 @ 6:30pm at the Matheson History Museum

“Advocacy Through Art” brings together artists, advocates, and academics in a panel conversation about art and its potential to inspire queer community. The Matheson History Museum will host Carrie Cotten (TranQuility Officer), Dr. Jillian Hernandez (Professor, UF Gender, Sexuality, and Women’s Studies), and Kim Sims (Gainesville artist, The Gender Spectrum Project) who will each share their experience as an advocate, academic, and artist to explore the role art centered advocacy can play in imagining brighter futures for trans and gender non-conforming people by forging queer community and inspiring self-love.

Register for the event!

TranQuility Monthly meeting & social – 4/24 7:30 to 9pm

The first half will be a discussion and the second half will be social time. Several of our regular members will be facilitating the discussion which is near and dear to them. Please join us for several fun icebreakers and cool trivia. To celebrate that April 6th was International Asexuality Day the discussion will be: Aromantic spectrum– People can experience very strong romantic attraction, no romantic attraction at all, or only rarely or in certain situations and Asexual spectrum– People can experience strong sexual attraction, no sexual attraction at all, or only rarely or in certain situations. After the discussion it is social time!

International Asexuality Day is a coordinated worldwide campaign promoting the ace umbrella, including demisexual, grey-asexual and other ace identities.

The four themes of IAD are: Advocacy, Celebration, Education, and Solidarity

TransWord/TransJams – “The Beat Generation” 4/13, 7:30-9pm

Get ready for some fun times as we recreate “The Beat Generation” – We will be creating some beat poetry or stories and letting the audience snap, clap, shake an egg, hit a cowbell, or beat a drum at the end of each poignant line. Come to create individually, or work in a small team or just sit and enjoy, no pressure to participate or even speak- we need an audience too. If there’s time we will end with a drum circle.
