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:

The meeting venue is at the Arlington Ale House, 111 W. Campbell St., third floor in Arlington Heights. It is across the street from Peggy Kinnane’s and around the corner from Big Shot. There are elevators. It is a beautiful space with a fully stocked bar. (sorry, no food available, but you can bring food in.) Parking is available at the multi-level garage on Vail. The July meeting will be a celebration of life in honor of Katie Thomas. Join us for an evening of shared memories. A buffet dinner is being planned. If you plan to attend, please send us an email, so we can do a rough estimate. Doors open at 7:00 p.m. The celebration of life begins at 7:30 p.m.

Members in good standing and first-time attendees are always invited to join our meetings on the second Tuesday of each month at no additional cost. For non-members returning to a meeting, there is a fee of $7.00, plus a $1.00 service transaction fee, which can be prepaid using the PayPal Button.   Everyone is invited to join our socials on the fourth Tuesday of each month.
