NTSU is celebrating LGBT+ History Month!

What is LGBT+ History Month? 

A month dedicated to celebrating the LGBT+ community. The UK, America and Canada all participate and this year it’s taking place in February.  

How can you get involved? 

We’re hosting a number of themed activities and events throughout the month to mark the occasion. 

A mini film festival and a discussion around attitudes towards the LGBT+ community are a couple of examples of the things we’ve got planned here at the Students’ Union and we want you to get involved. 

Below is a full list of all of the events.

Silver Pride: The experiences of older members of the Queer community in Nottingham 

Newton Room 43, 12pm-1pm 

Society may have progressed in recent times but what was it like for those growing up in a time when attitudes towards the LGBT+ community weren’t so accepting? Hear first-hand from the people who experienced it at this discussion.   

LGBT+ Short Film Festival 

The Loft, 1pm-3pm 

The Students’ Union are collaborating with NTU Pride Soc to bring you a dedicated LGBT+ film festival! We’ll be showing a number of short films (between 5 and 15 minutes each), covering topics such as coming out, gender identity, sexuality, relationships and love. All students welcome. 

Queer, Transgender and Intersex People Of Colour Discussion 

Newton LT9, 5:30pm-8:30pm 

Organised in collaboration with NTSU’s Ethnic Minorities Officer, we are joined by some prominent activists for a discussion around the unique issues that LGBT+ people of colour face, and how to tackle the integration of racism and homophobia in society.
