Hello Dancers!
Spring may be right around the corner, but it's still pretty chilly out--so come warm up at our monthly dance! Our March dance will be gender-free: a chance for callers to practice calling without gendered terms, a chance for dancers to try out different roles if they are so inclined, and a chance to welcome an even wider community to our dance. We hope you'll join us!

Music this month will be provided by a wonderful band full of local talent including our own Guillaume Sparrow-Pepin and Brian Perkins, joined by some of their musical friends. Friday March 27
8-11pm, with a beginner lesson at 7:45pm

PCVT’s Transgender Community Program meeting

on Thursday, 05 March 2015. Posted in Events, Safespace

Help direct the future of the Pride Center of Vermont’s Transgender Community Program

PCVT’s Transgender Community Program meeting

Sunday March 8th, 3 - 5 pm, at the The Pride Center of Vermont

Program planning meeting to help direct the future of the Pride Center of Vermont’s Transgender Community Program. Please come share your thoughts and input to guide the future of transgender programing at the PCVT.

We need everyone’s voice at the table! We need those who have a history of engagement and activism in the transgender community to bring their experience to the table and guide the program forward. And we need current and future organizers to join in the conversation and contribute their perspectives and ideas for the next generation of transgender community building in VT.

Some amazing support groups, clubs, events, and social functions have been happening at the center to build trans community, and now PCVT is in the process of bringing it all together to create a revived and more cohesive transgender program.

Included in the agenda for the meeting:

  • The history of the PCVT’s Transgender Community Wellness Program, the proposed new Transgender Community Program, and the mission of the program.

  • Get to know the trans programs: what trans programs are already happening at PCVT, who is a part of organizing them, and how they are run.    

  • What are the successes of the current programs? What are challenges that still need to be addressed for the Vermont trans community?

  • Effective organization of the larger Transgender Community Program, communication within it, outreach to the community, and effective partnering with other trans programs across Vermont.

  • Creating room for growth and development of the Transgender Community Program

We need everyone's voice at the table. We need our history. We need our future. We want to honor our past and learn from it while transforming our futures. Please, whether you feel you'd like to just sit and listen or jump right onto a coordinating a committee, your presence will be of great value. Please email back with questions and about logistics of the meeting, and hope to see you there.

PCVT, Gender Fun & Gender Pride Organizer and Co-Chair

Report Violence Online

on Thursday, 05 March 2015. Posted in Safespace

Report Violence Online

Report discrimination, hate violence, sexual violence intimate partner and domestic violence anonymously

Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer/Questioning, and HIV affected (LGBTQH) people face bias and discrimination every day, and may experience violence from an intimate partner or a stranger, but we may not think to report these incidents or feel comfortable speaking with someone. While SafeSpace feels that talking with one of our trained advocates helps, we also understand that not everyone may want to take advantage of this option. To give people a wider range of options, we have created this form as a way for you to report the violence anonymously.
