LGBTQ* Network

Northumbria University’s LGBTQ* Network is a fully inclusive community for staff and postgraduate researchers. The group supports and welcomes all staff at the University who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Non Binary, and other sexualities and gender minorities as well as any staff members who may wish to support their LGBTQ+ colleagues.

The main purpose of the group is to create and support an LGBTQ+ staff community at the University and work with the University to continually ensure there are up to date inclusive policies in place, creating further inclusive spaces and ensuring LGBTQ+ visibility across all our campuses.

The Network will also be working closely with the Students Union and student LGBT* Society to help ensure that students at the University are aware of our zero tolerance on hate crime and to provide a safe space to talk should there be any concerns from LGBTQ+ students during their time at the University.

The LGBTQ* Network regularly meet for socials and pride/LGBTQ+ events. The Network are also involved in events for non-LGBTQ+ colleagues which aim to raise awareness of issues affecting the LGBTQ+ community.

If you are a student at Northumbria or looking to join us as a student then you may be interested in joining our LGBTQ* Society of the Students' Union

The award-winning LGBTQ* Society endeavours to work around you, your wants and your needs, from providing a chance to meet like-minded people to advice on all things related to your sexuality, and/or gender related issues. They aim to be a welcoming place for all, where we hope you'll meet some of your best university friends, and share in a family atmosphere that you always want to be a part of, and will remember in the future. Your committee are always here whether you need advice or just a friendly face for a chat, as well as providing a lot of social events which we hope you will get involved in, such as nights out and bar crawls, tea and coffee meets, day trips and film and game nights.
