TRANSGENDER AWARENESS WEEK IS COMING

Transgender Awareness Week

The GLBT Center is observing Transgender Awareness Week from Monday, November 18th to Friday, November 22nd. The impetus for this week of events is Transgender Day of Remembrance, a global, annual observance for transgender individuals who were murdered over the past year. The Transgender Day of Remembrance Memorial Sculpture will be on display in the GLBT Center all week. Please visit us in Suite 5230 of Talley Student Union to pay your respects to those our community has lost.

Cultural Values about Gender and Violence in the Trans Community workshop @ Talley 3210
Nov 19 @ 1:00 pm – 3:00 pm

While there has been increasing attention in the mainstream media about GLBT issues, the issues faced by members of the transgender community have been noticeably absent from the national conversation. According to research done by the Williams Institute, 41% of trans people attempt suicide at some point in their lives, and the murder of trans people is at an all-time high in 2018. This 1 ½-hour workshop is open to NC State undergraduates, graduate students, staff, faculty and alumni as well as interested members of the local community. The workshop explores the cultural values that contribute to a climate of interpersonal, social and institutional discrimination, oppression, and violence in the trans community.
