Pride Week is happening at the LSESU from 15th-19th of February 2021!
To mark LGBTQ+ history month, the Students’ Union is hosting a week of events to celebrate LSE's Queer Community. Our LGBTQ+ Officer and the President of Pride Alliance have chosen the theme of 'Being Queer at LSE', as the aim of the week is to show how the experience of being LGBTQ+ is different for every student, particularly as it intersects with other aspects of their lived-experience such as race, class, faith and nationality.
Here's what we have lined up from the 15th to the 19th February:
On Monday 15th, join Photography society in speaking to Charmaine Poh, Andrew Jarman, Res and Matthew Papa, LGBTQ+ photographers, who will be discussing their experiences, artistic inspirations and how photographers can contribute to awareness-raising and inspire change around LGBTQ+ issues.
