LGBT+ and Friends


Please log in to join this organisation.


 LGBT+ And Friends is a society that welcomes all LGBT+ students, their friends, and allies. We understand that many students may feel like their sexuality 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 :)




LGBT+ And Friends have a lot of activities planned throughout the course of the year which includes :

  • Student Pride
  • Nights Out On Campus (Ignite)
  • Nights Out In Colchester (Waikiki)
  • Support Forums 
  • Trans Day Of Remembrance Vigil
  • LGBT+ Film Screenings
  • Bi-Weekly Meetings
  • Discussion Groups
  • A Social Dinner At The End Of Each Term
  • Host Events Throughout LGBT+ History Month And Pride Month
  • Collaborations With The LGBT+ Network, The Feminist Society, The Sexual Awareness Society, The Politics Society and many more!


There are a lot of other exciting projects under wraps with the society right now, however, they need to be finalized so stay in the loop by joining our Facebook and Twitter page. Links will be in the Contacts section :)






To all Transgender and Non-Binary or Questioning students, if you would like to be added to a secret facebook group or need advice on any matters, please feel free to add Jestin (
