The LGBTQ+ Equalities Action Group (LEAG) and the LGBTQ+ staff social network (Out@UCL) meet twice a term, at least. Staff at UCL can become a Friend of Out@UCL. If you'd like to become an LGBTQ+ ally, training is available on the UCL EDI pages. More information on UCL supporting trans and non-binary staff in the work place can be found here.

If your research is related to LGTBQ+, gender, sexuality or queer theory, then you may be interested in qUCL, which is a college-wide initiative that brings together staff and students who research these fields.

LGBT+ students can find information from the support and well-being service. Information relevant to the trans community can be found on the central policies pages, including information for students who have, are currently, or are considering transitioning gender.

If you would like to report any instances of bullying, harassment or sexual misconduct, you can do so via UCL Report + Support

UCL Trans Network is an informal network for everyone at UCL who identifies as trans (this includes non-binary, genderqueer & all other identities not identical with the gender assigned at birth). The network is available both on MS Teams (link to join) or on WhatsApp (sign up here) to provide peer-support and connection.

The LGBTQ+ Students' Network supports students in a variety of ways; the current LGBQ+ Officer is Jemima Barnes and Trans Officer is Amal Idris
