Gender Revolution is a social and support group for transgender and gender diverse people. In this space, we use the word transgender to reference people whose gender identities do not consistently or completely match the sex they were assigned at birth, in a way that is inclusive of nonbinary identities. We value diversity in gender identity, presentation, and expression, and are excited to foster a space where the experiences of all who are questioning, exploring, and celebrating their genders are valued. Anyone who is questioning their gender identity or would like to join the conversation is welcome.
We alternate weeks of more formal discussion-based content and less formal socializing meetings. Past discussion topics have included media representation of gender diversity, building healthy relationships, the intersection of disability and gender, and many more! Check out our Facebook page to see what this week’s meeting holds, and message the Facebook page if you would like to be added to the private group to share your input for future topics. Gender Revolution happens at OUTSaskatoon every Thursday from 7-9 pm.
About the Group Facilitator:
Drumlin Crape (they/them/theirs) is the genderqueer and transmasculine facilitator of the Gender Revolution group. Drumlin’s experience in the queer community began early when they led their high school’s Queer Straight Alliance in Calgary, and has since grown to include providing education to organizations wanting to improve their understanding and accommodation of 2SLGBTQ+ people, gathering resource lists for queer and trans organizations to use, and peer support. Drumlin’s years of experience with Camp fYrefly Calgary leading workshops, mentoring youth and learning alongside other queer and trans people have taught them a deep appreciation of community and chosen family. Outside of their Gender Revolution role, Drumlin studies English at the University of Saskatchewan, spends time with their cat and their loved ones, runs, listens to probably too many podcasts, and analyzes pop culture for queer subtext.
