LSE Queer Campaign

 

BACKGROUND

The LSESU LGBTQ+ Campaign is the Student’s Union first-ever campaign focused in supporting and improving LGBTQ+ student’s experiences at LSE. Since June, we have listened to our students and after careful, we developed a campaign considering three main topics: Mental Health Provision, Trans community support and Financial Support.
