Main Quad Pavilion, UCL, Gower Street, WC1E 6BT; 27 February, 5:30-7pm Out@UCL, UCL's LGBTQ+ staff network, is officially launching the

Friends of Out@UCL allies campaign launch eventbrite.co.uk/e/launch-of-outucls-allies-campaign-friends-of-outucl-tickets-31488212090" target="_self">Friends of Out@UCL allies campaign on Monday 27 February at 5:30pm in the Main Quad Pavilion, with an introduction by the UCL President and Provost, Professor Michael Arthur.

Allies have of course been historically important to the LGBTQ+ community and continue to be so.

The Friends of Out@UCL allies campaign seeks to encourage all UCL staff and students to visibly signal their support for the LGBTQ+ community through a number of practical and effective ways.

Staff also have the opportunity to attend ally training. It is hoped that the active support of allies will lead to a more inclusive and welcoming environment where all LGBTQ+ staff and students are free to be themselves.

Attendees of the launch event will take part in an interactive training session, encouraging self-reflection on their own actions as LGBTQ+ allies, followed by a drinks reception.
