LGBT+ is Plymouth University’s society dedicated to supporting and representing students who are part of the LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and all other sexualities & gender identities) community.
(N.B. All students signing up need to select the 'LGBT+ Standard Membership' to join the society. Please do not select the 'LGBT+ Committee Membership' as that is for the committee only and will only complicate the process of having to refund those who do to then be able to buy standard membership. Thank you!)
Our drive as a society is to represent and support all our members, and stand for the rights of LGBT+ people both within the university and nationally. We work closely with NUS:LGBT and help to support national campaigns. As in previous years, we hope to continue our support network across the University as well as the Students Union.
As a society, we host weekly socials open to our members (both drinking and non-drinking), regular awareness events and campaigns on relevant LGBT+ topics, and for the last three years running we’ve hosted our annual LGBT+ Pride on Campus. The events have been a huge success with charities, market stalls, local music acts and headliners such as Lucy Spraggan and Sean Miley Moore! Pride on Campus 2018 was our biggest success to date with an amazing drag and queerlesque show in the evening bringing everyone together!
For our members, we have a private Facebook page over which the committee will keep you updated on our latest socials, events and campaigns.
We pride ourselves on being absolutely inclusive of anyone and everyone who wants to join, and past members have commented on the society being integral to helping them settle in at University, and meeting new friends in a safe environment.
This year we have a lot of amazing things planned, with a revamp of our socials, many more workshops and campaigns, as well as our 4th LGBT+ Pride on Campus! If we sound like the society for you, come and see us at the Societies Fair during Freshers’ Week on Thursday the 20th of September, or just sign up here and you will hear from us shortly. If you have any questions about our society feel free to email us using the contact details above.
IMPORTANT - Sign ups open around the Freshers Week period in September. When you've signed up, check your university email and you will receive our welcome email which will explain how to get into our private members only Facebook page, where we post all our socials, events and campaigns, so make sure you check that and don’t miss out <3
