Trans Talk Tuesday
Trans Talk Tuesday is a year-round peer support/discussion group for people who identify as transgender, gender non-conforming, or who are questioning their gender. This space is meant to provide community and connection among folks on the basis of gender identity. The group is open to campus and community members that identify as transgender (in any respect), genderqueer, or who are questioning their gender identity or gender expression.
Trans Talk Tuesday meets on first and third Tuesdays. Submit the interest form to join the email list for reminders and location information. The Trans Talk Tuesday facilitator may contact you before adding you to the list.

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 each week, please sign up for the Trans Talk Tuesday email list through the interest form.
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.
If you have questions or require accommodations to fully participate in this program, please contact us.
Frequently Asked Questions
Can cisgender allies attend Trans Talk Tuesday?
This space is not meant to be an educational space where people have to explain their identities. Unless you have been asked to accompany someone who is transgender, gender-nonconforming, or questioning their gender (i.e. for emotional support entering a new space), we ask that you do not attend this program. You are welcome to attend any of our educational programs and/or resources for supportive families and friends.
Is Trans Talk Tuesday only for UNC-Chapel Hill students?
No. Anyone over the age of 18 who identifies as transgender, gender-nonconforming, or who is questioning their gender is welcome to attend.
Does Trans Talk Tuesday stop over summer break?
This program is year-round, meaning that it continues regularly through academic holidays.
