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.

This three-hour workshop is open to NC State undergraduates, graduate students, staff, faculty and alumni as well as interested members of the local community.
