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.
