We're on Facebook!

...that's right, the Wichita Transgender Coalition has finally gotten with the times and built a Facebook group! Membership is invitation-only and invisible, so if you'd like to join, send us a message by way of our Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/wichitatranscoalition--and while you're at it, come like our page!

Want to connect with us in-person? Our next closed meeting is this Saturday, May 12--for time and location information, contact Asher at asher.james@rocketmail.com. We'll hope to see you there!

Growing Group; Changing Schedules

The last few meetings have been an exciting time of growth for the Wichita Transgender Coalition! We've welcomed a number of new members, and look forward to seeing more new faces over the coming weeks.

In the interest of better accommodating everyone's schedules, and to hold our meetings a little closer together, we will be slightly altering the timing of our regular meetings. Closed meetings on Saturday will continue to be held the second and fourth Saturday of each month, at our regular location. Our open meetings on Wednesdays, however, will shift to the first, third, and (when there is one) fifth Wednesdays of each month--that location will also stay the same.

If you have any questions about our new schedule, or if you'd like to join us, drop Asher a line at asher.james@rocketmail.com!

Holiday Party!

Hey, everybody--the holidays are just around the corner, and we hope yours are looking to be fabulous! But we know as well as anybody that they're not always altogether kind to trans folks. When it comes to family, well--we've all gotta do what we've gotta do.

But for everyone who's going to be in town, and figures on needing a break from the misgendering, or a recovery from those awful clothes you've been stuck in all day--we're here for you!

In lieu of our regularly-scheduled meeting, the Wichita Trans Coalition's holiday party will be happening the day *after* Christmas, at 7:00 p.m., December 26. If you'd like to be there, talk to Ash and he'll give you the low-down--plan to bring some food, a favorite game, and an optional gift to exchange; and if you can't do any of that--come, anyway! We want to see you there.

Thanksgiving News

Hey, WTC members!

With Thanksgiving coming up fast, we wanted to give members an opportunity to gather, while also leaving time for those of us who will, to spend time with family. We'll be meeting this week at a different location from our usual unofficial gathering place--if you are interested, please contact Ash only at asher.james@rocketmail.com so that we can get a rough head-count.

Also: due to some sudden health issues, Susan will be unavailable for online contact in the near future--she sends her best to everyone, and we look forward to having her back with us as soon as possible! In the meantime, if you need to reach the WTC, please use Ash's contact info, so that we can be back in touch with you in a timely way!
