Trans Talk Tuesday

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 among folks on the basis of gender identity. All students, staff, faculty, community members with these identities are welcome.

We have been asked if allies are welcome. However, this space is not meant to be an educational space where people have to explain their identities.
In LGBTIQA+ 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?

When: The 1st and 3rd Tuesday of the month, 6:15-7:15pm (now year-round!)
Where:  Caribou Coffee (corner Estes & Franklin)

LGBTQ People of Faith Discussion Group at Chapel of the Cross

Are you a queer or questioning person with an interests in the intersection of faith and identity? On Thursdays from 5:00-6:00 PM, the campus ministry of the Chapel of the Cross is hosting an inclusive and affirming discussion group that will be investigating how to make sense of the Bible’s teachings on sex and sexuality, what spiritually-healthy sexuality looks like, and what the place of the body and desire is in the life of faith through discussion and study. Special attention will be paid to the particular challenges of Christianity and queerness, but everyone (regardless of religious beliefs, sexual orientation, or gender identity) interested is welcome. 

The leader of the discussion group, L. Patrick Burrows, is a doctoral candidate in the study of religion at Harvard University, writing a dissertation on theology and place in the American South. His work has broadly focused on the intersections of Christian theology, the study of the American South, humanistic geography, and critical theories of gender, sexuality, and race. He holds a B.A. in linguistics and French from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and an M.Div. from Yale University. Outside of his scholarship, Patrick is a bread baker, cyclist, Durham Bulls fan, kombucha brewer, and dog dad to a year and half old Vizsla/Lab mix.
