Welcome to the LGBTQ+ Society!


As the university's LGBTQ+ society, our goal is to provide a safe space for LGBTQ+ people here on campus and bring our community together


We have weekly meetings on Thursdays from 6 to 8pm, either consisting of a presentation on a specific subject and an open discussion about said subject, or consisting in more social and fun time, with things like board games or arts and crafts for example!


We also hold coffee socials every Tuesday (times to be confirmed) to provide another social time for our members to connect and get to know each other without the formality of our Thursday meetings.


For more details on all of our events, buy a membership to subscribe to our mailing list and follow our instagram @lgbtqsociety_essex to stay up to date!

We are always open to suggestions from our members on what events we should hold, so please don't hesitate to submit your ideas to our suggestions box (, or to send a message to the society!
