BodyImage4Justice is pleased to announce that we are expanding into western Massachusetts! Please join us for dinner and an introductory meeting, where we will brainstorm ideas for local programming and discuss how BI4J can best serve members of the trans community west of Boston and Worcester. We believe that trans communities everywhere deserve the resources and support that they need to stay as healthy as possible, and we especially want to help people who live in areas that lack such resources. Please help us do this work by coming out to meet us and let us know your needs, ideas, and dreams for the kind of community health support you’d like to see!
Date/Time: Tuesday, April 8th from 6:30 to 8:30 pm
Location: South Congregational Church, 45 Maple Street, Springfield, MA
This event is free, and dinner will be provided. If you live in western MA and are on the transfeminine or transmasculine spectrum, or are outside/beyond the gender binary, you are invited to attend. We look forward to meeting you and sharing food for the body and the mind together!
BodyImage4Justice and Fenway Health are collaborating to present a two-hour workshop exclusively for people on the transmasculine spectrum. This will be an accountable, non-competitive space where you can share your body challenges and experiences as a transmasculine person, and receive information and resources in a supportive, confidential environment.
Date: Saturday, February 1, 2014
Time: 10:00 am – Noon
Location: Fenway Health, 9th Floor, Meeting Room 1
We wish to thank and acknowledge all of our wonderful partners for this event: The Fenway Instutite, The Fenway Trans Health Program, CKLife, and LifeSkills for Men. Thanks to their support, this will be an event full of useful information and resources for those on the transmasculine spectrum.
Please RSVP at the Facebook Event page or contact us via e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org to reserve your seat, as there is limited space at this event.
- How can we be our whole selves in a world that defines us as “other”?
- How can we get the support we need to transition in a healthy way? How can we support each other in this effort?
- What resources do we have in our community for better, healthier living during transition and beyond?
Please join BodyImage4Justice, the Mass. Transgender Political Coalition, and TransCEND for an evening of conversation on health and wellness for the trans community, where we will discuss these questions and more. You’ll come away from this event with information, resources, and ideas about how to take better care of yourself in the transition process and throughout your life!
