T-MAC MEETINGS & EVENTS
You can also join our closed Facebook group and Discord server. We are currently meeting in person every 1st, 3rd, and 5th Friday at the Center on Halsted, along with occasional online meetings.
As a peer-led group, all meetings, discussions, and presentations are led by T-MAC members. We are always looking for more people to lead meetings or give presentations! Have an idea for a meeting, or want to lead a meeting yourself? Submit an idea here.
Want to come to a T-MAC meeting? Here's some things to know:
Our official meetings are limited to those who are AFAB (assigned female at birth) and identify as FtM, transmasculine, non binary, or are questioning their gender. Meeting participants should also be 17 or older.
If you do not fit the listed demographic for the group but are interested in being involved in another capacity (as an ally, for research or for educational purposes) please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Caregivers, friends, and allies are welcome at certain of our social events, but not at the meetings themselves.
While T-MAC is intended for people in the Chicago and Chicago-adjacent area, non-Chicagoans are fully welcome to attend Zoom meetings and join our Discord.
Meetings usually begin with going around the group with names, pronouns, and our highs/lows of the week before moving into the presentation or discussion topic.
Please do not bring alcohol, weed, or other substances to the meetings, even if they are just for you. Snacks and drinks to share are always welcome, however!
Try to arrive on time, but it is okay to be late! Meetings usually run 6:30-9:00pm, but you are free to jump in or leave at any time. We also often go out to a local bar or small restaurant afterwards for additional socializing.
Online meeting rules
Please respect the privacy of our attendees, and be mindful of your location when calling in. If you don't have a private location available, wear headphones.
We encourage attendees to include their pronouns in their name on Zoom. (Note: you can change your username for each individual zoom meeting your attend when joining. This does not change anything on your standard zoom profile.)
We love to see your face, but you are welcome to keep your camera off if it makes you more comfortable. However, attendees are encouraged to show us their pets whenever possible.
