Channel Blond

Channel Blond aims to bring together members of the Black LGBT here at NC State. We meet and discuss things that aren’t normally discussed or taught to us in our communities, and these topics range from safety in relationships, navigating hetero-dominant spaces, and what to do while attending Pride events. We created a family for students to come and feel safe and accepted for who they are. Channel Blond is a closed group and everything is kept confidential. We help those in the Black community come to terms with their sexuality; utilizing anonymous coming out services. We plan to do fundraisers and we go on social outings like roller skating. This is a space for Black queer/questioning students to show up and explore/understand who they are without the added pressure of presenting how society deems socially acceptable. We support each other and encourage growth. Check our calendar for meeting details. If you are interested in joining, visit Get Involved for contact information.
