WELCOME TO THE GLBT CENTER
The GLBT Center is one of four campus community centers (along with the Women’s Center, Multicultural Student Affairs, and the African American Cultural Center) housed under the Office of Institutional Equity and Diversity (OIED).
The GLBT Center serves students of all sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions, including gay, lesbian, bisexual, pansexual, asexual, queer, transgender, genderqueer, gender fluid, gender non-conforming, non-binary, agender, intersex and questioning students and their allies. It strives to increase the NC State campus community’s understanding of diversity by working collaboratively to raise awareness, promote respect, and create a culture of equity, inclusion and social justice.
GLBT History Month is an annual series of events held each October that is designed to engage students, faculty and staff in learning about the intersections of GLBT history and activism. Be it a lecture, workshop, a film viewing and discussion or an hands-on event, the GLBT Center seeks to create a space for students, faculty and staff to learn about identity, history, community challenges, politics and strategies for creating change. The theme for GLBT History Month 2017 is Resistance Through Existence.read more

Trans 101 is a two-hour workshop open to NC State undergraduates, graduate students, staff, faculty and alumni as well as interested members of the local community.

This workshop addresses common issues faced by trans students and strategies campus community members can use to be trans inclusive.

Stop by the GLBT Center on Mondays from 5-7 PM and hang out in the lounge. The weekly Monday Movies & Mingling is designed to be a multipurpose drop-in space for students who want to study, connect with friends, watch a movie, play games, or meet other GLBT and Ally students.
Bi/Pan @ NCSU is an interest group serving the needs of students who identify along the bi/pan sexual or romantic spectra and their allies. Bi/Pan @ NCSU meets twice a month on Mondays at 7 p.m. and provides a safe space for bisexual, pansexual, flexible, queer, curious or questioning students to feel affirmed, address challenges and build community through networking and solidarity via topic-led discussions and sharing experiences among other students with similar identities.
A licensed Counselor from the NCSU Counseling Center will be at the GLBT Center every Tuesday afternoon for walk-in appointments, consultations, and scheduling of appointments.
