Genevieve Ma'yet is an FoF community member and educator who also happens to be transgender. Come hear Gen's story and learn how you can be a better ally to the transgender community.

About Miss Genevieve:
Ms. Ma’yet is a passionate poet, painter, outdoor enthusiast, ardent environmentalist, animal rights advocate, certified Texas science teacher, and she happens to be transgender. She is NASA certified to handle Lunar Samples, a nationally recognized environmental professional, owns a small horse and tac business, an LGBTQIA advocate and outreach specialist. In her brief life, she has worked with endangered animals, befriended an octopus, become a certified Master SCUBA diver, and has swum with sharks...all in the name of science with a plethora of hilarity. She hopes one day to be sent into space, but feels her addiction to pizza may be slightly detrimental to that goal.

Fellowship of Freethought, as part of its mission to promote a family-friendly organization that emphasizes education, socialization, and charity, will be encouraging its members to gather together once a month to learn from each other, share in each others' lives, and coordinate outreach to the community. These "Gatherings" will combine music, short presentations, and special announcements all running alongside a fun yet educational youth program. Following presentations and youth activities is a potluck meal to encourage close fellowship among all members.

Potluck Tips
Just bring food (whatever dish you like to eat). FoF Dallas will supply the drinks, ice, napkins, plates, cups, and eating utensils.

Bring enough to feed yourself, your family, and your guests — as if that were all you had to eat.

Food should be "ready to serve". It should be cooked, cut, and ready for someone to quickly put it on their plate as they walk through the line.

Label your dish with the ingredients if it contains common food allergens: milk, eggs, peanuts (groundnuts), nuts from trees (including Brazil nuts, hazelnuts, almonds and walnuts), fish, shellfish (including mussels, crab and shrimps), soy products, and wheat.

Applications for Voting Membership will be collected at the Gatherings.
