Intro to Chicago Gender Society (CGS):

Thank you for visiting our site. We hope that you will find the information you are searching for!

The Chicago Gender Society (CGS) was founded in May 1987 for transgender education and support. CGS continues to provide a safe place for people to explore their gender identity.  We do this through our monthly meetings, socials and events. If you are new to the community, CGS meetings provide our members and guests an opportunity to network with other individuals exploring similar feelings and provide educational programs from experts in the fields of interest to our members.  Our monthly socials provide an evening out with members and friends in a public environment.  Our events range from a golf outing, an evening of bowling, to a grand Holiday Party.

Chicago Gender Society (CGS) Meeting:

Join us in person at the Kenneth Young Center located at 650 E. Algonquin Rd, Suite 104, in Schaumburg, IL on Tuesday, June 13, 2023. We are pleased to announce that our speaker for this month will be our very own Jacqueline Anne Perry, who volunteered to give us a condensed introduction to ALICE TRAINING. She attended a 3-hour program hosted by PFLAG National. The training session was called A.L.I.C.E. Active Shooter Preparedness. It has been developed by “Navigate 360” and presented to PFLAG National by A.L.I.C.E. Training. Inc. While it may feel uncomfortable to think about this topic, it is an unfortunate reality in our world today. This discussion will be relevant, informative and teach you how to be better prepared for difficult situations.

A Zoom link will be provided upon request. Just send us an email to: [email protected]
