Resources on LGBTQ+ equality at UCL and beyond.
LGBTQ+ people are a valued part of our community at UCL Engineering, as engineers in general, and in the wider world. Below we've provided context on LGBTQ+ equality in our Faculty, as well as resources at UCL and beyond. We use the term "LGBTQ+" to mean "lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, and queer/questioning" with the + signifying other gender or sexual minorities not otherwise mentioned.
