Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Transgender
Hello there! You may be wondering what exactly does LGBT stand for? The acronym stands for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans and occasionally you'll find a 'Q', which stands for Questioning. So if you self-define as any of the above or are straight and gay-friendly or simply unsure, then you’re more than welcome to come along!
Who are we?
We're simply students at the University of Stirling, who self identify as gay, lesbian, bisexual, or trans, who turn up to the LGBT Society meetings. There's a committee that runs the society, consisting of myself who’s the President & Treasurer, the Vice President, the Womens’ Officer and the Publicity Officer.
What do we do?
We meet up for social nights, at which we chill out and have fun. We also have nights out to Edinburgh/Glasgow, guest talk nights, general meetings, and we'll organise events. Additionally, the group and more specifically myself the LGBT Officer, Mark Charters, are here to give you advice and support if you need it. To summarise, we provide a safe social environment, issues awareness, and help and support.
Where are we?
We meet in room 2A87, Cottrell building. Walk along the link bridge into Cottrell and turn left at the end. Keep going all the way up the corridor and you will eventually come to 2A87 on your left.
When are we there?
TUESDAY, 8pm, room 2A87
Who can go?
If you're gay, lesbian, bisexual, trans, questioning or curious, then you're more than welcome! If you are straight and gay friendly then you’re also very welcome. If you want to bring along a friend for moral support, then that's cool! So come along!! If you're still unsure, and would like to talk to someone first then drop me a line (see below).
