Possibilities May Meeting

May 16, 2017 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm

After a fantastic relaunch in April, our second Possibilities Self-Care Meeting is scheduled for May. Here we go, friends!

In May, we’re going to talk about self-care within the bisexual, pansexual, asexual, and other non-monosexual communities, particularly in terms of how to do good self-care for ourselves when we are acting as supports for other people around us.

This will be a discussion of self-care in the context of caregiving and supporting others while also dealing with our own marginalizations. We’ll talk about what self-care strategies have been most effective for us when we are acting as supports, and also what we’ve found most helpful from people who have supported us.

Our May meeting will be on May 16, from 6:30-8:30 PM at the Nicholls Family Library, in the program room upstairs. There will be snacks, conversation, and, most importantly, community.

We have a new focus on self-care and self-storying for the b+ community (bisexual, pansexual, and asexual, with an intentional focus on trans inclusion), and a new framework for sustainability (you can now support this work by backing the Patreon at http://www.patreon.com/sostarselfcare).

You can read about what happened and our new focus and framework here – http://tiffanysostar.com/relaunching-possibilities-calgary/.

There is no cost to attend.

This is an intentionally queer, feminist, anti-oppressive space. The discussion will be open, as they always were, to all genders and orientations, as well as all abilities, educational levels, classes, body types, ethnicities – basically, if you’re a person, you’re welcome!

It is important to note that Possibilities Calgary is a community discussion group and not a dating group.
