Welcome to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Resource Office at East Carolina University. Since 2011, we have served the entire ECU campus from our office in B-103 Brewster Building. We are open Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Our resources include a lending library; information on campus, local, and national resources; and two computer workstations, in addition to a social area and offices for our staff. 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!
Laverne Cox is the groundbreaking Emmy Award-nominated actress who plays Sophia Burset in “Orange is the New Black,” the critically acclaimed Netflix original series. Drawing on her own story, she will share challenges and joys that she experienced along her journey to womanhood, professional achievement, self-acceptance, and love. She will also discuss how race, class, and gender affects how she navigates the world as a trans woman of color, actress, and advocate.
Inspired by the incredible story of Dr. Christine McGinn and her work as a transgender surgeon. TRANS provides an up-close and very personal insight into the lives, loves, and challenges of remarkable people of all ages and from all walks of life—stories of confusion and courage, excitement and emotion that have never been told, until now. TRANS is an extraordinary documentary feature about the transgender community, perhaps the most misunderstood and mistreated minority in America and around the world. A discussion will follow the film.
