WHO WE ARE

The LGBT+ & Friends society welcomes all LGBT+ students, their friends, and allies. We understand that many students may feel like their sexuality or gender identity can become a barrier for them from being themselves around peers. At Essex, we believe in creating a welcoming and safe environment where you can meet like-minded individuals and feel included in a positive environment. We want you to belong to a great community and get an amazing degree whilst having experiences that you can cherish for a lifetime! We believe that you can be whoever you want to be :)
