The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) Center works to foster a welcoming and inclusive environment for UNC-Chapel Hill community members of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions. We address this mission by allocating our resources across three broad areas:
- Educational programs
- Direct services and resources
Programs, services, and advocacy efforts are guiding by an intersectional social justice framework. This framework recognizes that people experience the world in very different ways depending on the constellation of identities they hold and the ways that those identities are privileged and/or marginalized by the existing institutional structures and societal norms.
The LGBTQ Resource Library is located at the LGBTQ Center in SASB North, Suite 3226.
Books and videos are available to students, staff, and faculty with a UNC PID number for a two week check out period. Non-UNC affiliates may use resources in-house only. Patrons can search the library holdings via the web (see the Resource Library Catalog to the right), but must come into the LGBTQ Center in order to check out materials. Materials may be renewed depending on availability and requests for use by other patrons.
