GLBT CENTER UPCOMING EVENTS CALENDAR
The GLBT Center sponsors a wide variety of events on campus throughout the year. Check the calendar below for upcoming events and workshops to get involved and stay current.
The GLBT Symposium is a half-day welcome and community-building experience designed to provide incoming students with information about the GLBT Center, annual events, and ways to get involved. Students will learn about GLBT student organizations on campus, opportunities to volunteer through the GLBT Center, and the GLBT resources in the local community. Incoming students will get a chance to connect with each other and hear from returning students about what it’s like to be GLBT at NC State. This annual event is a great way for students to make new friends, enjoy free food, and have some fun.
The 2017 GLBT Symposium will be held on Saturday, August 12 from 12:00 – 4:00 PM in the Piedmont Mountains Ballroom of the Talley Student Union. Lunch will be provided for all participants.
Join the GLBT Center (Talley 5230), Women’s Center (Talley 5210), and Multicultural Student Affairs (Talley 4261) from 1-3 PM as we welcome new and returning students to our annual fall Open House. Meet the staff, make new friends, and enjoy free food. Also make sure to stop by the African American Cultural Center (Witherspoon 355) from 2-4 PM for their Open House.
T-Files is the GLBT Center’s transgender, genderqueer, agender, gender non-conforming, gender questioning peer support group. Meetings are “closed” meaning they are open only members of the NC State community and surrounding area who identify under the trans umbrella or are questioning their gender.
Founded in 1972 with the simple act of a mother publicly supporting her gay son, PFLAG is the original ally organization. Made up of parents, families, friends, and straight allies uniting with lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) people, PFLAG is committed to advancing equality through its mission of support, education and advocacy.
If you are a parent or friend struggling to understand and accept a lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or queer loved one, we can help. If you are an LGBTQ individual seeking an affirming community within which to explore and grow, PFLAG Triangle is here to support you. If you are a friend or ally seeking to advocate on behalf of equal rights, we welcome you.
PFLAG Triangle meets on the third Wednesday of every month at 7:30 PM at the Community United Church of Christ located at 814 Dixie Trail, Raleigh NC 27607.
Part of the mission of the GLBT Center is to provide ongoing support for GLBT faculty and staff on campus. To fulfill that mission, the GLBT Center coordinates the GLBT Faculty and Staff Network in order to provide an opportunity for GLBT faculty and staff to connect and form community, to supply informal and formal feedback about campus climate, to support and mentor GLBT students, and to connect with prospective GLBT faculty and staff members. The Network meets once a month. Check our calendar for meeting details. If you would like to join the Network, please contact Renee Wells, Director of the GLBT Center, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
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.
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.
QTPOC (Queer and Trans People of Color) provides a safe space for African American, Hispanic/Latino, Asian American, Native American, multi-racial, and communities of color who identify as GLBT. QTPOC provides a space for students to share their experiences, discuss how their racial/ethnic and GLBT identities influence each other, and connect with other students who are navigating multiple communities and what that can mean in terms of feeling welcome, accepted, and included. QTPOC meets twice a month on Tuesdays at 5 p.m.
The GLBT CommUNITY Alliance (GLBTCA) is the primary social organization at NC State for GLBT and Ally students. GLBTCA meets every Tuesday at 7 p.m. Want to know more about GLBTCA?

AcePack is an interest group serving the needs of students who are questioning, who identify as members of the asexual and/or aromantic communities and their allies at NC State.
The Social Justice Cohort aims to gather a group of dedicated individuals interested in exploring concepts of race, gender, sexuality, ability, age, religion, social justice, privilege, power, and oppression as they overlap and intersect within society. We will unpack the ways in which these systems of oppression operate within our culture and how we can move towards liberation as a community.
