Throughout the year, we offer educational programs and events, and participate in national campaigns such as Coming Out Day, Transgender Day of Remembrance, and “Gay? Fine by Me.” We invite you to visit the LGBT Resource Office—everyone is always welcome!

The LGBT Resource Office invites you to Coming Out Stories, an evening of personal experiences and a celebration of LGBT pride. In sharing our stories, we create community and strengthen the ties that bind us. Please join us to listen or to share—everyone is welcome. Refreshments will be served.
This event marks the LGBT Resource Office’s annual celebration of Pride and includes “Gay? Fine by Me,” the nationally recognized advocacy campaign to encourage everyone to speak up for equality and social justice for sexual and gender minorities. Be an Ally! Celebrate the diversity of community and take the pledge to treat all people with respect, dignity, and compassion. Free “Gay? Fine by Me” t-shirts will be distributed. Limit: One t-shirt per person. Supplies are limited. First come, first served.

Athena’s Path, a creative expression group for women, begins September 29
The LGBT Resource Office announces the first meeting for Athena’s Path, a new opportunity for women to share their individual experiences through creative expression. The mission of this group is to provide an opportunity for women of the ECU community to meet, create, and collaborate.
The first meeting will take place on Tuesday, September 29 from 11 am to 12:30 pm in Brewster B-104. The intention of Athena’s Path is to promote a supportive, imaginative climate for women at East Carolina University to explore the multiple aspects of their identities that inform their lives and experiences. Athena’s Path hopes to strengthen the relationships between women, encourage personal growth, and create community and a sense of belonging.
