LGBTQ+ is a society at the University of West London dedicated to providing a safe space for those who identify as LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and questioning, as well as other sexual and gender identities such as asexual, intersex and genderqueer) to fully express their sexual orientation and/or gender identity without fear of intimidation or harassment.
We also welcome straight allies, so don’t be afraid to join and come along to our events, whoever you might happen to be!
Our main goal is to have fun, create a safe and inclusive space, as well as making friends, make a difference and spread love.
Accessible - All official events are accessible to wheelchair users!
Fun - We hold a mixture of alcohol and non-alcohol events so everyone feels included and can have fun in the way they choose!
Inclusive - We will always follow the UWLSU Safe Space Policy to make sure students from all backgrounds feel safe and happy!
We hope to see you all lovely people with us this year!
Once you purchase a membership for our society, you will have access to most of our events for free. You will need to pay for other with sometimes a discount.
You will also have access to our WhatsApp group. You will get to meet a lot of people, make friends with us and have emotional support anytime.
Events and Activities
We have a lot of events planned! Hopefully the pandemic will be under control by then and we will be able to carry them on as normal.
We have movie nights, game nights and art nights on the schedule as well as collaborations with amazing societies.
We also want to have as many open mics and debate nights as possible. .
Safe - There will always be at least one sober committee members present during alcohol socials to get you home safely!
As of now, you can get in contact with us through our Instagram @uwl_lgbtq
