Hello everyone! It’s an exciting time, as we enter the first week of LGBTQ+ History Month! We’ve got lots planned and hope you’ll be able to attend and enjoy one or more of our events!
Monday – Coffee Evening will be at 6PM in Furness TV Room. This is our casual social weekly event where we have a warm drink and a chat. Feel free to bring games or friends!
Tuesday – We’ll be holding a stall in Alexandra Square (weather-dependent), giving information on LGBTQ history and giving out ally ribbons to those who donate and sign the ‘I Won’t Stand For It’ pledge.
Wednesday – We’ll be holding our weekly meeting (location TBC). We’ll be discussing our upcoming plans for the rest of the month, and going into more planning for the Canal Street trip at the end of term! We’ll also be holding a discussion on the LGBTQ+ acronym.
Thursday – The regular meeting of the Postgrad, Mature Student and Staff (PMS) group will be in Fylde Bar at 5:30PM. This is a casual gathering where LGBTQ postgrads, mature students and staff can relax after work, socialise and discuss LGBTQ issues specific to them.
On Thursday evening at 7PM in Furness Lecture Theatre 2, we’ll be watching the film ‘Boys Don’t Cry’, a semi-biographical film about the life of the trans man Brandon Teena. Please note that the film contains content warnings for rape, violence and murder.
Friday – T and Coffee, the social night for trans students, will be on Friday evening at 6PM. If you’re interested in this, please contact us on Facebook (completely confidential).
On Friday evening our Pyjama Party social will begin at 7PM in Bowland North Seminar Room 23. This will be a fairly relaxed social where we let our hair down, watch a movie, paint our nails and wear face masks. All are welcome.
