Trans Talk Tuesday

December 6th, 5-6:00 pm

Trans Talk Tuesday is the LGBTQ Center’s peer support and discussion group, intended to provide community and connection among folks on the basis of gender identity. All students, staff, faculty, and community members who hold identities as transgender, genderqueer, or gender-questioning are welcome!

At this time, we are using a hybrid model for Trans Talk Tuesdays. On the first Tuesday of the month, the meeting will be held at the Orange County Rape Crisis Center, and the third Tuesday will take place online via Zoom.

Please note this is not an educational space where people are expected to explain their identities. Cisgender allies are welcome to contact the LGBTQ Center at (919) 843-5376 or email us at to talk with our staff about what educational resources are available to you.
