UCL: 'Pink Paper' favourite

8 February 2006

Readers of the 'Pink Paper', the UK's leading gay and lesbian newspaper, have recently voted UCL as the best university in the country.


Richard Woloshen (UCL Human Resources), Chair of the UCL Sexual Orientation Working Group (SOWG), said: "This award is something of which UCL can be justifiably proud, particularly as February is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender (LGBT) History Month."

The SOWG is UCL's consultative body on employment issues concerning sexuality. There are a number of initiatives and other groups at UCL that are concerned specifically with sexual orientation, as well as those dealing with more general equalities work.

UCL Union's LGBT Society is the focal point for LGBT students and has around 1,200 members. It organises events of various types that let members make new gay and lesbian friends, and enjoy socialising in a principally gay and lesbian group.
