How do you learn to identify yourself?

Are you struggling with identity? Do you feel like society's expectations of you are completely different than how you feel? There are so many more people like you! Come to our first general meeting to meet others experiencing events in their lives similar to yours. We will have games, some bonding exercises, fun food, and speeches from some special guests. Bring some friends if you feel like this isn't an issue you want to face alone or if you just need a companion! The more the merrier! We hope you see you there!

The Goal of our Club

We notice that many people are struggling with identity. They feel as if society expects them to be someone related to their race, gender and religion, but they don't want to be associated with those. Everyone simply wants to be their own person. We want to help people be comfortable in expressing themselves freely. We will know that our club has brought about positive change when we see people expressing themselves in a way in which they feel comfortable, not associated with their gender, race, religion, or country. People walking down school hallways wearing western clothes because they feel like it regardless of their ethnicity. People walking down school hallways wearing cultural clothing because they feel like it regardless of the country they are in. People not being afraid to be proud of their sexual orientation even if they are in a religion that does not accept it. When changes such as these occur, we will know that our club has brought about positive awareness. We strive to teach people to be themselves as long as they are being themselves in a respectful and non offensive way. This club is always open, so you don't have to join us for our first general meeting. You can definitely pop in whenever you feel like it and we will be extremely inclusive and welcoming. We hope you see you there!
