The 48th Fuwa-Cafe

Date & Time: January 22th (Mon) 12:50p.m. - 15:10p.m.

Coming in the middle or leaving early are both OK.

No entrance fee; no reservation necessary (but we accept donations towards tea and snacks!).

Place: Center for Gender Studies(CGS) ERB-I 301

Subject: Things we like, and things we are dependent on

Manga, games, things that we are hooked on, or things that we like. Alcohol, tobacco, drugs, or things we want to escape from but can't give up. We'll enjoy tea, coffee and snacks as we talk about gender and sexuality in a relaxed atmosphere. Worries we've discussed before include:

"I might be attracted to people of the same sex as me"
"I might be attracted to both men and women"
"I have no interest in romance"
"I have a woman's body, but I want to be seen as a man"
"I have a man's body, but I want to be seen as a woman"
"I don't want others to determine my gender for me"
"I don't want to put a label on my sexual identity."

Besides these examples, if you have something else in mind and want to talk it over, please feel free to bring it up. With beverages and snacks prepared, we are waiting for you to come chat with us!
