Hello, welcome to the official University of Sussex's LGBTQ Society.
 
We run regular events, campaign and lobby on issues we feel are relevant to the LGBTQ community, and provide welfare support. We are here to offer a safe space environment to all LGBTQ students and staff at the University of Sussex. 
  • We hold frequent committee meetings (about once a month), which everyone is welcome to visit.
  • We also have a weekly Coffee Morning from 1pm on Wednesday, usually in the LGBTQ room.
  • Our Welfare Officers hold weekly drop-in sessions during term time at 3-4pm on a Friday in the Student Life Centre not organised by the Uni, for you to come and talk to them about anything that might be troubling you. If you have any problems please feel free to visit our welfare page.
  • To find out more about our weekly events please email us info@sussexlgbtq.com to join the mailing list or visit our Facebook page which is regularly updated

 

New Website, Old Address!
The Society has a brand spanking new website that took 3 days to make! So give it a visit for the most up-to-date info about the society.
The old site will also no longer be updated and recently we moved it to the old website's address so it's easier to find :-)
Link to to the right.

Hi everyone,
Thank you to everyone who came to the Ball last night, it was possibly the best event we've ever done, well worth the effort!
It was a great way to end the year, we'll definitely be doing it again!

A special thank you to the performers Folk Soc, Zach Backencrack and Ronnie Realto, we loved you! ...
Also to the hotel and Matt for providing fantastic services!

I said it last night but I just want to say again how much I appreciate the efforts of Ellie, Robyn, Joe, Lili and Sam you've made this year the best for me and the society and I can't thank you enough.

We hope everyone had a good time and we'll be organising elections soon so keep an eye out ??

Love
Chris
