June is Pride Month, an important opportunity to celebrate and recognise our LGBTQ+ University community. With parades, festivals, and concerts going on across the globe, there’s lots of ways for you to get involved.

Explore our Pink Brick project

Over the past 40 years the political and societal attitudes towards lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans people have changed beyond recognition. Developed in 2012, The PINKBRICK project charts these changes from the University’s perspective, by looking at official University and Guild records, along with memories of past staff and students.

Reflect on 50 years of Pride
