Monday, Nov. 14

Creating an Altar for our
Trans & GNC Loved Ones


Stop by and help us in making an altar at the Office of LGBT Life to honor and remember those who have been lost to transphobic violence.

The Human Rights Campaign, in continuing the pioneering work of trans journalist Monica Roberts, keeps track of fatal violence against transgender individuals. Sadly, 2022 has already seen at least 32 transgender people fatally shot or killed by violent means, a number that is more than likely a significant undercount.

Join us from 11am to 1pm on Monday November 14 in AMUC 132 (the Office of LGBT Life) to honor these individuals and contribute to the love and care for our trans and GNC family.

THIS EVENT IS OPEN TO ALL

Tuesday, Nov. 15

Pop-Up Thrift Shop


Stop by and grab some FREE, gender-affirming clothing for your fabulous self! We will have racks of donated clothing of every type, a small dressing room, shoes, belts, etc!

Tuesday, November 15 from 10am to 5pm in AMUC 132 (Office of LGBT Life).

The thrift shop will be open 10am-5pm every day until November 18.

Emory Programs & Opportunities

Nov. 8, from Emory Libraries

A practical approach to using Homosaurus to improve LGBTQ+ bibliographic description

This is the second part of a two-part program.

In this two-part program, Adrian Williams, the Cataloging & Metadata Librarian at the University of Kentucky Libraries and Homosaurus Editorial Board member, will discuss the bibliographic description of LGBTQ+ people and topics. They will address various methods to improve the description and discovery of LGBTQ+ topics, concentrating primarily on the Homosaurus controlled vocabulary.

The first program ALREADY HAPPENED and was of more general nature and that could be useful to subject librarians, faculty and students involved in LGBTQ+ related research. The second program is geared more towards catalogers and metadata specialists who want to use Homosaurus terms in subject analysis and bibliographic description.

Nov. 8 at 2pm. Register here: https://emory.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_KnoMC_99SoqPkqIijV_n4Q

From our friends in BCJ
Take the U.S. Trans Survey!

Now to November 21st

Take the 2022 U.S. Trans Survey!


The 2022 U.S. Trans Survey is open for responses! The U.S. Trans Survey is the largest survey of trans people in the US, and takes place every 7 or so years. It is run by the National Center for Transgender Equality.

The last iteration of the U.S. Trans Survey happened in 2015 and gathered 28,000 responses, and has been the basis for a TON of subsequent research and statistics on trans people in the US. If you've read an academic article on transgender people, odds are it cites data from the U.S. Trans Survey. If you've read a newspaper article, odds are it has data in it that connects back to the U.S. Trans Survey in some way.
  • The survey is open to people of all trans identities (binary and nonbinary), ages 16 and older, living in the United States and U.S. territories, regardless of citizenship status.
  • The U.S. Trans Survey is an anonymous survey. Your response will be kept confidential and will not be used to identify you.
  • The time required to take the survey may vary, but make sure to set aside at least 60 minutes to take the survey.
  • The survey will be available in both English and Spanish.
  • Please let your trans friends and siblings know about the survey too!
Take the survey here: https://www.ustranssurvey.org!
