UWE LGBT+ Society

We've got big plans for this year and we invite all ALLY and LGBT+ Students to join in and get involved! 

UWE LGBT+ is open to all students, staff and members of the community within Bristol. This is regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity. We know talking about sexuality is becoming more commonplace, but for some it is still a huge step, and we are here to provide a wholly confidential advice service should you need it. You can join as a LGBT+ Member or ALLY Member!

Who is on the UWE LGBT+ Team?

All societies have an elected committee, which can build a hierarchy and make for an unapproachable feel! This year we've thrown out the 'Committee' concept! Eveyone on UWE LGBT+ Team were indivudually elected at the end of last year, and we are always open for people to join and get involed. Everyone on the team is super nice and friendly, you're more than welcome to contact us on any of our personal social media accounts!

What do we get up to? 

From fundraisers to socials, campaings to skydives, we really do keep busy! We have a full calendar of events for the year ahead with more being added as the year goes on! If you've got an idea or something you'd like us to put on then please do get in touch. 

Where can you find us?
