The T-House is a community gathering space and event series for transmasculine and masculine of center individuals including trans men, nonbinary people, genderfluid people, butches, studs, two spirit people who identify with transmasculinity in any way, and anyone who feels included by the phrase "transmasculine and masculine of center people" regardless of specific gender identity or affectional orientation.

Please fill out our T-House interest form for more information and to subscribe to our email list. All are welcome to attend, and in this space we will be centering and honoring the lives and experiences of transmasculine and masculine of center people.

Join the T-House and the LGBT Studies Department for a community discussion and workshop on dating, relationships, and sexual health in the transmasculine community! We will be looking at how transmasculine and masculine of center people approach sex, bodies, and love, and how this interrupts cisheteronormativity and uplifts queer people of all stripes.

In honor of Bi Health Month, the T-House is excited to present a workshop on navigating and accessing healthcare through a transmasculine lens. The workshop will cover some of the common barriers and disparities for both bi+ and trans communities, as well as uplift the experiences and wisdom that transmasculine and masculine of center bi+ people can offer in the world of health. What opportunities for health solidarity can exist between bi+ and transmasculine communities?

Fall 2020 Events

Access Info

This event series will take place virtually through the platform Zoom, which can be accessed via computer, tablet, or phone apps, or by your choice of browser.

We will use content notes/trigger warnings as needed. If you are unsure whether an upcoming event will contain potentially fraught material beyond any listed content notes, please feel free to email us and ask.

All films will be captioned in English, and audio description may be available upon request. All images will be alt-texted and/or audio described.

We are not currently anticipating any use of flashing/strobe lights, and if they happen unexpectedly we will take action to remove them from the space.

All types of communication are welcome and encouraged, including speech, sign, text, and AAC (augmented and alternative communication devices).

The QRC is working on securing access to CART (live captioning) and/or ASL interpreting for spoken portions of events, and we will update this site as soon as we have a definitive answer for the availability of these services. For the moment, we do have access to Zoom's autocaption feature. We acknowledge that this is no substitution for CART and ASL interpretation, and ask for patience and understanding as we fight for the implementation of these crucial services in all college events.

If you have any access needs that are not addressed in this statement, please contact DSPS, and feel free to contact us as well so that we can follow up with them if you don't get a response.
