Darcy Jeda Corbitt-Hall is a doctoral student in clinical psychology at North Dakota State University and an award-winning transgender rights advocate based in Fargo, ND. She strives for a world where people can live fearlessly in their journey toward self-affirming discovery, and her story of the transformative power of boldly accepting personal identity has touched thousands of people. Prior to relocating to Fargo, Darcy was instrumental in adding gender identity/expression to Auburn University’s anti-discrimination policy, and she brought visibility to Alabama’s transgender community through a front page newspaper article on coming out as transgender on a conservative southern campus. In 2014, she was named youth activist of the year by Equality Alabama for her work on Auburn’s campus. Since arriving in North Dakota in August 2015, Darcy has continued her passionate work in communities throughout the state. In 2016, she was inducted into the NDSU Tapestry of Diverse Talents. She currently serves as the chairwoman of the NDSU Equity and Diversity Center Advisory Board and a member of the North Dakota Department of Human Services LGBTQ+ Advisory Board. She believes the single biggest threat to equality is fear, apathy, and misinformation about the issues and cultures of others. To reverse these trends she fearlessly embraces others and nonjudgmentally helps them to better understand their LGBTQ+ friends and neighbors, finding her way into their hearts in the process.
