Join us in celebrating LGBT History Month

To celebrate the end of Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT) History Month, we will be holding a special discussion looking at the relationship between faith and sexual orientation in University House on Monday 29 February.  

Taking place from 12.00pm - 2.00pm, this event will explore how sexual orientation and faith impact on each other under the banner: “Religion, Belief and Philosophy” and you will hear from those who have reconciled their faith and their sexual orientation.

There will be free pizza and cake, so please make sure you book yourself onto the event so that we know how much food to order:

This is a free, roundtable event and we hope to promote positive stories of people of faith and differing sexual orientations.

We have three guests from the LGBT community lined up but we also hope that some of you will share thoughts on who your role models are when it comes to your identity – have a think beforehand about who these might be.

Now in its 16th year in the UK, the LGBT History Month was set up to promote equality, particularly in education, which makes it all the more relevant for universities to lead on the celebrations.

You can find out more by clicking here and check out the events available to you through your Students' Union here.

All are welcome – you don't have to have faith or be part of the LGBT community. But please don’t forget to book your place before 29 February!

We’d love you to talk about your experiences of faith (or no faith) and sexual orientation at the event as well. Alternatively, you can email Arron telling your story at

If you have any questions, email Arron or give him a ring at 0161 295 2152.
