- NOSHA's Banned Books Club - Gender Queer1817 Marengo St, New Orleans, LA
Gender Queer: A Memoir is a 2019 graphic memoir written and illustrated by Maia Kobabe. It recounts Kobabe's journey from adolescence to adulthood and the author's exploration of gender identity and sexuality, ultimately identifying as being outside of the gender binary.
Gender Queer has been described as being at the center of a larger wave of challenges to books with LGBT content that began in 2021, and has included other books like Lawn Boy and All Boys Aren't Blue. The American Library Association ranked it as the most challenged book in 2021 and 2022.

- Freethinkers Fika - DecemberCC's Coffee House, New Orleans, LA
This will be William's last Fika for us, so it will be a momentous last day of 2023. We are looking forward to a really lovely visit and discussion that will carry his long legacy successfully into 2024!
Our monthly Freethinkers Fika is a small, friendly social gathering for humanists, atheists, agnostics, and freethinkers to engage in free discussion with like-minded others in a coffee-shop atmosphere.
Secular Humanism is a philosophy that seeks to make sense of the world using science, reason, and shared values; we reject attempts to explain the world in supernatural terms. This philosophy forms the basis for our affiliation in NOSHA, and thus will necessarily inform the perspective from which topics are discussed.
The Fika is not a formal moderated discussion or debate; attendees can raise whatever issues they wish to discuss. The only requirement is that we all treat each other with courtesy and respect, even if disagreements arise. We do want to include everyone who wishes to speak in our discussions, so individuals are discouraged from dominating conversation to the exclusion of others. Attacks or proselytization will not be permitted.
++We hold this event in a small private room, which means space is limited. Therefore, we ask that you are serious with your RSVP, and update it on Meetup if your attendance status changes.
