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


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 Steering Group?

No, the LGBTQ+ Equality Steering 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 Steering Group page for more information. 

How do I become a member? 

If you would like to become a member of the network sign up now.
Please note that you need to be directly logged-in to the UCL network for this link to work.

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?
