In LGBTIQ spaces do you feel like the T is left out?
Would you like to connect with folks around topics of gender identity and gender expression?
Are you questioning your gender identity and hoping to talk to other questioning folks?
Would you like to share your knowledge and expertise in regards to navigating systems that don’t often recognize diversity within gender?
Join the LGBTQ Center’s peer support/discussion group for campus and community members that identify as transgender, genderqueer, or gender-questioning. This space is meant to provide community and connection amongst folks on the basis of gender identity. All students, staff, faculty, community members with these identities are welcome.
Accommodations for Physical Distancing
Trans Talk Tuesday will be moving online for now. We'll be meeting the first and third Tuesdays at 6:30 (NOT 6:15 like we usually do) on Zoom, a videoconferencing platform with an online, desktop, and mobile app. If you'd like to receive the Zoom info reach week, please sign up for the Trans Talk Tuesday email list by emailing the facilitator, Anole, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Once we are given University guidance to resume close-proximity in-person programs, Trans Talk Tuesday will return to its usual schedule of meeting first and third Tuesdays from 6:15pm to 7:15pm at Caribou Coffee, 1408 E Franklin St, Chapel Hill, NC 27514.
We have been asked if allies are welcome. As this space is not meant to be an educational space where people have to explain their identities, we ask that people who do not identify as part of the transgender community (i.e., cisgender allies) not attend. Instead, please consider taking advantage of one of the following resources:
- PFLAG (Durham and Raleigh) https://www.pflagtriangle.org/
- Transforming Families Support Group (LGBTQ Center of Durham) https://www.lgbtqcenterofdurham.org/events.html
