Out@UCL

What is Out@UCL?

Out@UCL is a staff social network and is a way for lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans (LGBT) staff at UCL to get to know each other and take part in social events. The group was set up in July 2009 as some LGBT staff considered that, in an organisation as big as UCL, it was difficult to get to know people in other departments, especially other LGBT people.

What does the network do?

The group networks through lunches and evening events. There is also an email group for members to communicate virtually and share information about LGBT-related events, publications and news stories. Click here to view the flyer for the group.

Is this the same as the LGBT+ Equality Group?

No, the LGBT+ equality group is a policy group which meets every couple of months to discuss how to implement equalities legislation in the workplace and promote LGBT equality. Click here for more information.

How do I become a member?

If you would like to become a member of the network then send an introductory email to out@ucl.ac.uk.

International Day Against Homophobia, Biphobia and Transphobia (IDAHOBIT): a worldwide celebration of sexual and gender diversities, 17 May 2014

Freedom of expression is the international theme of this year's IDAHOBIT, set against a background of repression of freedom of expression for LGBT+ people through new laws, as in Russia and Uganda, and a climate of fear in others. Out@UCL, the UCL LGBT+ Staff Network, asked UCL staff and students: what does freedom of expression mean to you? Click on the link above to see their responses.
