Who are the UWE LGBT+ Team?
Our committee works without a hierarchy, all members have equal say, and everyone is encouraged to get involved. The team is hugely involved with the social aspects of the society, not just the logistics, and we’d love to get to know every member individually and take in ideas from all over the place.
President - Cecil McKie (he/him) (Cecil2.McKie@live.uwe.ac.uk)
Vice-President - Rowan Crilly (they/them) (Rowan2.Crilly@live.uwe.ac.uk)

How can I get involved?
We are always looking for new committee members! To talk about this, or to ask about or request a charity or event please feel free to message a member of the committee using the provided details!
We are passionate about fundraising, so if that’s something that speaks to you please don’t hesitate to get involved. In 2019 we won RAG'S Fundrasing society of the year award after raising and donating £3,564 to amazing LGBT+ charities, and while Covid-19 has put a damper on our efforts, we’re absolutely raring to raise even more in the coming year.
Who can become a member?
LGBT+ - Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender (+ referrs to the multitude of other identities within the community, such as Asexual, Nonbinary, or simply Questioning.)
Ally - Someone who doesn't identify as LGBT+ but is supportive of LGBT+ people

We only have one level of membership, you can become a member regardless of who you are. (We're all about inclusivity and equality here!)
