We are excited to celebrate LGBT+ History Month with a number of events and activities throughout February, hosted by students and staff across the University.
“LGBTQ+ History Month is a time when the family and our allies come together to celebrate the progress and achievements in LGBTQ+ rights and life as well as recognising the progress that is still to be made. Please come along to show your support and solidarity and have some fun and network too” - Jay Dickens, LGBTQ+ Officer for the Student Association
If you are interested in getting involved, you can find out more about joining or becoming an associate member of the LGBTQ+ Network societies HERE
Join us for a sequence of inspirational TEDx style talks delivered by ULaw staff, students and alumni, showcasing the vibrant LGBTQ+ community we have at the University and across the wider professional community. A fitting end to a full programme of ULaw events and activities across LGBT+ History Month. LGBTQ+ students, staff and allies are encouraged to attend, enjoy and network virtually.
