Out@UCL

Information on the Out@UCL Network

Out @UCL has developed a network to give LGBTQ+ staff, students and visitors an inclusive environment. 

What is Out @UCL?

Out@UCL is a staff social network and is a way for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and queer  (LGBTQ+) 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 LGBTQ+ staff considered that, in an organisation as big as UCL, it was difficult to get to know people in other departments, especially other LGBTQ+ people. 

Who are the members of Out@UCL?

We have staff members from across UCL in our network; read more about some of them here: We Are Out@UCL


FAQs

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 LGBTQ+ related events, publications and news stories. For more information see the flyer for the group:   


Is this the same as the LGBTQ+ Equality Advisory Group?

No, the LGBTQ+ Equality Advisory Group is a policy group which meets every couple of months to discuss how to implement equalities legislation in the workplace and promote LGBTQ+ equality. Visit the LGBTQ+ Equality Advisory Group page for more information.

Freedom of expression is the international theme of this year's IDAHOBIT, set against a background of repression of freedom of expression for LGBTQ+ people through new laws in Russia and Uganda, and a climate of fear in other countries. Out @UCL, the UCL LGBTQ+ Staff Network asked UCL staff and students: what does freedom of expression mean to you?
