What is CenterSpace?
CenterSpace provides a monthly drop-in space for different communities within queer life at the University of Michigan. CenterSpace creates space for people of similar identities to gain support from one another while building a community of collective resources. There will be a CenterSpace host each evening who identifies within the community being centered. The host will greet participants, guide the conversation, answer any questions, and gather/share resources.
Our CenterSpaces in the past have included:
- bi, pan, fluid and similarly identified or questioning
- ace/aromantic and similarly identified or questioning
- trans, agender, genderqueer, non-binary and similarly identified or questioning
- queer and trans people of color (QTPOC) and similarly identified
CenterSpace Schedule for Fall 2019
The following CenterSpace drop-ins groups will be taking a break in Fall 2019 and restart once Spectrum Center is moved back to the Michigan Union in Winter 2020: Bi, Pan, Fluid CenterSpace, Ace and Aromantic CenterSpace and Queer and Trans People of Color (QTPOC) CenterSpace.
The Trans, Genderqueer, Nonbinary & Agender CenterSpace will continue meeting in Fall 2019 on Sundays from 3pm-5pm in 2469 Mason Hall. The first CS of the semester will be Sunday, September 8th. If you're interested in this CenterSpace, contact the host, Jay Hash, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
