Are you an LGBT student at LSE? Whether you’re starting as a fresher or returning after the break, there’s a lot going on that you can get involved in. John Peart, the LSESU LGBT Officer, says this academic year is one of the most fun-filled that the LSESU has ever run! Find out more about the events in this post.
As an LGBT student at LSE, you’re part of the LSESU LGBT Alliance – the representative body of LGBT students at LSE. Our aim is to improve the social, welfare and careers opportunities of LGBT Students on campus.
If you’re an LGBT Fresher (or even a not-so-Fresher), the start of this academic year is one of the most fun-filled and jam-packed that the LSE Students’ Union has ever run. Here’s just some of the events we’re running.
