CLP Teen Sexual and Gender Diversity Club

On Saturday, the first pre-planning meeting of the CLP Teen Sexual and Gender Diversity Club went underway. Of course, CLP Teen Sexual and Gender Diversity Club isn't necessarily the name of the club (nor does it roll off the tongue), but I can't really use GSA since it's for more than gay and straight teens. Here's what we talked about:

  • What will we call the group? Nobody had any ideas, and it's open to discussion.
  • When will we meet? One teen suggested the first and third Saturday of each month, at 2:00 PM. How does that sound?
  • Where will we meet? At the library? Kiva Han? Anywhere else around Oakland sound good to anyone else?
  • What will we do? Here's what we brainstormed: podcasting (making our own downloadable radio show), publishing a newsletter, political action, watching movies, making videos for Youtube, mutual support, develop special library programs (in celebration of LGBT history month, Day of Remembrance, or just generally fun stuff), book clubs, just generally fun & awesome things to do in the summer, and more!

As you can see, we have a lot to talk about. Please feel free to post comments and suggestions here or e-mail wilkj@carnegielibrary.org.

Take care,
Joseph

Cool Beans. It's so great to give the teens some constructive outlets. Teens just need a safe place to have fun and be kids.
