Welcome to the LGBT Resource Office
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!

On June 14 last year, more than 500 people from across the region filled Town Common in an evening of solidarity and hope to take a stand against violence and hate directed at the LGBT community. This year, on the one-year anniversary of the attack on Pulse nightclub in Orlando, we gather to remember the 49 lives lost in the deadliest mass shooting in U.S. history.
We are reminded of Lin-Manuel Miranda eloquent response a year ago:
Senseless acts of tragedy remind us that nothing here is promised,
not one day.
We live through times when hate and fear seem stronger.
We rise and fall and light from dying embers,
Remembrances that hope and love last longer.
And love is love is love is love is love is love is love is love cannot be killed or swept aside.
The public is invited to attend. Please join us.
Co-sponsored by ECU's LGBT Resource Office, PFLAG-Greenville, PiCASO, and SAGA (the Sexuality and Gender Alliance at ECU).
Safe Zone training is an opportunity for people to talk, learn, and ask questions about sexuality and gender in a non-judgmental, safe, educational environment. The purpose of Safe Zone is to create a network of allies who are willing to talk to students about sexual orientation, gender identity, and gender expression. Training is offered throughout the year on Main Campus and the Health Sciences Campus. Each session is three hours in length and includes a panel of students who share their experiences as members of the LGBT community on campus.
Registration for faculty and staff is open through Cornerstone.
Safe Zone Trainings are scheduled as follows:
- Tuesday, June 13 from Noon to 3 pm in Laupus Library, Room 1504
- Thursday, June 22 from 9 am to Noon in Student Recreation Center, Room 202
- Thursday, July 13 from 9 am to Noon in Laupus Library, Room 1506
- Thursday, July 20 from Noon to 3 pm in Mendenhall Student Center, Room 244
The LGBT Resource Office will be open throughout the summer. Our office hours are 8 am to 5 pm Monday through Friday. We welcome visitors throughout the year! Additionally, we will participate at the Orientation Fair for new students throughout the summer. If you are coming to campus this summer as part of the orientation process, we invite you to stop by our office in Brewster B-103 or look for us in the Student Recreation Center during the Orientation Fair.
