Welcome to the De Montfort University LGBTQ+ Society website for the 2017-2018 academic year!
We are a welfare/social group for anyone who identifies as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or any other identity which comes under the LGBTQ+ banner. Are you looking for likeminded people who are here to listen to you and support you though your time at DMU? Are you looking for a new group of friends who organise regular welfare evenings, bar tours and social events? Then we are the group for you!
Support & Welfare
As a welfare society, we are here to help! We want to help you have the best time at university as possible, and we are more than happy to help anyone who needs any advice on any gender or sexuality issues. If you are in need of any advice/help or just want a friendly chat please don't hesitate to contact any of the committee, we will deal with any issues/problems you have, with complete sinscerity and confidentuality. All of our committee are incredibly friendly, so don't be afraid to contact us! No problem is too small.
We also are here to help if you spot any homophobia in or around the university.
Keep an eye on this page for further events, we're currently working on some great events!
