LGBTA Center

The Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Ally (LGBTA) Resource Center at NC Central University serves as a vital link by which LGBTQIA+ individuals can find a sense of community and everyone can learn about LGBTQIA+ identities and culture.

Proud of Our Past, Present, and Future

The NCCU LGBTA Resource Center first opened its doors on April 9, 2013. NC Central University was the first HBCU in the state to establish a LGBTA center and the second in the nation. Our campus community provides support services, educational programming, and advocacy, as well as opportunities for leadership and professional development.
