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

Leaf Awards

What is the Leaf Scheme?
Leaf awards reflect contributions of the society or sports club towards its members, the University of Sussex Students’ Union, the University of Sussex, the local community and the public. Leaves can be attained at bronze, silver or gold levels by meeting three, six or nine criteria. Leaves apply for an academic year as a symbol of what the present committee have achieved.

Groups can work towards nine leaves:

Below are the Leaves we have achieved so far this year:

 

Social Leaf

The Social leaf is awarded to groups who have taken active steps to include as many members as possible and regularly engage in various social activities, including those organised by - and with - other societies/sports clubs.

 

Communications Leaf

The Communications Leaf is awarded to groups who communicate with their members and the student body regularly and in innovate ways.
