The Year That Was- Individual and Community Retrospective on Year 2013 and Discussion of AB 1266 California’s new Transgender Law
**Please note- the date of this salon has been changed. The new date is now 12/11/13.
For this salon, we will be dividing it up into two parts. Part I will involve a discussion of the recently passed AB 1266- California’s new Transgender Law- which mandates new rules for how transgendered students are to be treated in California schools. It requires that "a pupil be permitted to participate in sex-segregated school programs and activities, including athletic teams and competitions, and use facilities consistent with his or her gender identity, irrespective of the gender listed on the pupil's records."
We will be discussing the potential impact and pros and cons of this law as well as comparing it to recent SF regulations on transgender issues.
Part II will be an individual and community retrospective on Year 2013:
What is “your story” of the year that was- for yourself or “your community”?
Anything about relationships (friends for family or romance” that you celebrate—or want to avoid doing again?
What are the most significant events of this past year for you as an individual and for our community (hint: Marriage Equality)
On a longer historical canvass: How have your (or our community’s) values changed over the course of our lives?
Perhaps most of all: What have you/we learned from the year just passed?
**To celebrate the end of the year and the holiday season, we will be having light refreshments and snacks. Join us!
