  • how you’re involved with Agender Chat

They only sold genders at my local Blockbuster (for some reason?) and when it went out of business they didn't have any cool genders on Amazon so I just never got one.

Agender Chat – On Now!

Today’s chat runs on Monday, May 21, 2018 from 4:00 PM – 6:00 PM EDT, also known as 9:00 PM – 11:00 PM BST, or Tuesday, May 22, from 6:00 AM – 8:00 AM AEST.

This week’s topic: Fostering Agender Pride

Even though we logically know that our identities are real, normal, and valid, sometimes it’s hard to internalize that and feel proud of who we are. How do you foster agender (and/or nonbinary, and/or trans, etc.) pride? What strategies do you use to work on feeling comfortable and happy with your presentation, your labels, and yourself in general? Come share your thoughts!

Join us here!

Note: While Agender Chat is busiest during chat hours, our channel is available 24/7/365. Come say hi whenever is best for you. Check out the blog for more information, or check out our Patreon!

Welcome New Followers

We’re so glad you’re here! To get the most out of Agender Chat, here’s some info about how we do things (under a cut for length):

P.S. Longtime followers and current chat members might want to skim through this, too. Agender Chat is always growing!

Blog Stuff:

Agender Selfie Sunday
On Sundays (relative to USA time zones), we post submissions from our followers to the blog and reblog awesome agender content. Feel free to share a selfie, a photo of your pet, your recent art project, positivity messages, etc. Send in your submission anytime, and you’ll see it appear on the blog on a Sunday!

Resources
We have a resources page. From there you can navigate to crisis help, our Gender FAQ, past answered asks by topic, positivity posts, and so on. If there’s a certain resource you would like to see more of, please let us know!

Social Media
We’re on Facebook and Twitter. Feel free to connect with us!

Support Our Community
We accept donations in two ways: we have a Patreon page and Venmo. Paypal is coming soon! We really appreciate the people who are able to support us.

Chat Stuff:

How Discord Chat Works
The Agender Chat Discord Channel is always open, 24/7/365, for live chat. You do not need a Discord account to use it. You can run Discord in your web browser or download the Discord client to your computer or mobile device.

When you click the link to join on this page [x], you will be sent to the #welcome-circle channel. On your first visit, you can automatically read the messages in #announcements and review the #rules channel. However, for access to view and type in our #main-chat or listen/talk in our voice channel (i.e. to contribute and participate), you need to reach out to a moderator via private message (PM). You’ll see their names listed on the right hand side in the #welcome-circle. If no moderators are online when you join – we’re sorry. Please try again later or come back during chat hours!

Chat Hours
We offer organized times throughout the week when you can be sure there are people in chat – including at least one moderator. These are the best opportunities to join chat for the first time. We begin each session with our weekly topic, but that is meant as a conversation starter, not a limitation. Also, while it is common to discuss our personal experiences and identities, nobody is required to talk or share if they would rather not. Feel free to suggest topics!

Check out our calendar page for the current schedule and upcoming topics. You can even add our Google calendar to your own account to help remind you.

Chat Rules
Agender Chat is open to everyone  – all ages, all identities, so we do our best to keep it a safe and welcoming environment. Full rules available here.
