Chicago Gender Society facing dissolution proposal
One of Chicago's last transgender organizations is staring down a dissolution proposal after a controversial move by the group's president. Carol Rodgers, Chicago Gender Society (CGS) president, put forth the measure to disband at the group's Feb. 12 meeting. Rodgers said her intent is to create a new organization out of the old. The move came just days after another transgender organization, Illinois Gender Advocates (IGA), voted to dissolve. It also followed an announcement late last year that CGS was cancelling its annual Be-All Conference due to waning attendance and funds.
