who we are

let's spread some love for our full selves. this group is for queer diabetics to share resources, information, and support with one another. maybe we can start talking about how homophobia and ableism intersect too. and once we start talking about it, maybe we can work on dismantling both forms of oppression. what do you say?

Hi Katie: Oh, I am so sorry that a low blood sugar kept you from our little gathering! Well, that just means we'll need to do another one. And bring all the GFs. Blush Wine Bar is awesome, BTW.

Comment by Muragaki on March 5, 2012 at 4:31pm

Well, ya gotta start somewhere, and three's as good a number as any!

Unsure about June, the GF's schedule keeps changing. If this one holds, we'll be able to do long-weekend type trips, and one of the first would be SF as one of her sons lives there. I'll keep watching the boards to see what y'all are up to...

Hey all,
SO sorry I couldn't make it :(
I had a last minute insane blood sugar crash and fell asleep after I treated it. I'm super bummed I missed out meeting you all. I'd love to attend another one whenever people can get together next!
And my GF Kiran would totally be into that support group! :)

Hi Vicki: It was a small group, just Emily, her GF Katarina, and me. Emily says that Brande needs to come next time so Brande and Katarina can form a support group :) Unfortunately Katie didn't show. But we sure had fun! Will you be out here towards the end of June? It would be great to get together.

Comment by Muragaki on March 5, 2012 at 12:28pm

So... how'd the meet go?? If y'all have one in June, I may be in the neighborhood!

Comment by Melitta on March 2, 2012 at 7:43pm

I'll be there, too! Looking forward to it.....

Comment by Katie on March 2, 2012 at 3:51pm

Awesome, I'll be there. Hope to meet as many of you as possible!

Comment by Emily Coles on March 1, 2012 at 2:59pm

Hey all,

Reminder: those of us in the SF Bay Area are meeting at Blush Wine Bar, THIS SATURDAY at 3pm!

So far I've only heard from a couple takers, and it would be great to have a table's-forth of us in attendance. Good drinks, good snacky food. I'm really looking forward to meeting folks offline!

Comment by Muragaki on February 13, 2012 at 12:09pm

Powerful! Thanks for the heads-up, Judith!

Comment by Katie on February 6, 2012 at 10:16am

I'll be there - looking forward to meeting you all!
