Friday Night in the East Village!

All right! The recent spate of interest in this group that was sparked by Ayres has now produced a genuine bona fide Meetup. Let’s meet at the 11th St. bar at 510 E. 11th Street in the East Village, on Friday, February 12th, at 7pm. It is just past Avenue A, 1 block north of Tompkins Square Park. It is a bit of a walk from the Subway, but it has a lot of charm (exposed brick, tin ceiling, hardwood floor) and is unlikely to be crowded early on a Friday night. The music is also fairly quiet so we will not have to shout to hear each other. There is a full bar, with an excellent selection of beers on draught. Since they don’t serve food, it is BYOF. They have a bunch of menus you can ask to see at the bar. I’ll likely be ordering some Chinese.

Let’s talk about gender roles. The subject is everywhere we look in our daily lives. The contradictions, and mixed messages of our society need to be critiqued. Come with an open mind, sympathy for those who do not share your gender or sexuality, and enthusiasm to explore the constructs of gender. There need not be a rigid time frame, but I would expect to meet from 7-9pm. Look for the group at the front of the bar, near the bench and coffee table. I will email my cell # to those who RSVP “Yes” to assist with locating each other. Feel free to text or call. Hope to see you all there!

    Thank you Sven for a great evening discussion. I loved all the great topics and the desire to know ourselves beyond the labels and identity of gender.

    For many of us it's a 3 day weekend, so come on out here to gab with others who think a lot about gender issues. Forget about the ice and cold. You'll feel better when you have a drink and share some thought.

    See ya!
