So I'm radical (anti-authoritarian) and gender queer, but don't have too many other radical queer friends, and I'm wondering if there are any (discussion, reading, resource, support, etc.) groups that meet around here on a regular basis that are like-minded.
When I tried to find any groups like this online pretty much the only thing that came up was the Northwest Gender Alliance. I'll probably end up checking them out, but the vague impression that I got from their website is that it might not be the most interesting/understanding space for a youngish anarchist revolutionary. Especially since they seem to be closely tied to the Q-Center, with its not-so-cool sounding police involved Q-Patrols. Now I don't mean to hate on the Q-center necessarily, I'm sure they do a lot of important, good work. I'd just rather be in a space with other folks who have a sane policy with regards to the state (as in, don't work with it!).
Anyhoo, if it turns out there aren't any groups like this, then I wouldn't be opposed to the idea of helping to start one. Leave a comment if you have a suggestion or think that starting a group like this sounds like a particularly good idea.
