Welcome to Bristol University's multi award-winning LGBT+ Society!
We support, represent and bring together the lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and plus students of Bristol University.
Our aims are to:
a. To provide a safe meeting group for LGBT+ students.
b. To promote student body awareness of LGBT+ issues.
c. To provide peer group support for LGBT+ students.
We do this by arranging many events throughout the year, from coffee afternoons to bar crawls with other local universities, meals out and trips to other cities, and even hold our own version of 'Come Dine With Me'! Join our Facebook group (www.facebook.com/groups/uob.lgbtplus.soc) to hear about upcoming events including our Fresher's White T-Shirt Party with free giveaways, courtesy of our sponsor OMG Club.
We also run campaigns within the university campus; last year saw our very successful campaign for same-sex marriage and events for Trans Awareness Week and LGBT+ history month. This year we are, again, looking to hold events during Trans Awareness Week and LGBT+ history month, with other events being planned for Asexual Awareness Week.
Last year was a great year for the society, we were named the NUS LGBT Society of the Year, and won the 'Best Student Group' and 'Campaign of the Year' at UBU Awards Night, so why not get involved to make this year even better?
We are inclusive of all gender and sexual minorities so however you identify, or if you prefer no label at all, you are more than welcome to join us, and don't worry you don't have to be out to join! The LGBT+ Society values your privacy and will do our best to protect it - just let your fellow members know that you don't want to be tagged on Facebook etc. You also don't have to identify as LGBT+ to join us - supporters are very much welcome at our events.
We look forward to meeting you! :)
