LGBT+ Students’ Network
Our network supports students who are lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans*, queer, intersex, asexual spectrum, aromantic spectrum and/or any other sexual, romantic or gender minority during their time at university. It also helps students interested in LGBT+ issues to meet like-minded people and groups in the university and across London.
The LGBQ+ Officer, Angel Ma, is a part time officer, which means they are continuing their studies while also representing and supporting students who identify as Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Queer.
The Trans Officer, Nestram Rickman, is also a part-time officer, and is continuing their studies while representing and supporting students who identify as Trans.
Finally, the LGBT+ Students' Network is overseen by the Equity Officer, one of the 6 full-time Sabbatical Officers.
What is the LGBT+ Students' Network?
The LGBT+ Students’ Network is here to support you in your study and work, to provide you with social activities, as well as to campaign on your behalf and raise awareness of your issues.
The aims of the Network are:
- to provide social and welfare support to LGBT+ students;
- to campaign and raise awareness of LGBT+ issues, both on campus and outside of it;
- to represent LGBT+ students on the Union Council.
The network enables you to meet like-minded people within UCL and across London. We work closely with other LGBT+ networks, societies and charities, putting on joint social events and joint campaigns, and providing volunteering opportunities. In the past, our events have included parties, club nights, coffee socials, book groups, panel debates, talks, film screenings, trips to cinemas and museums, guided walks, quizzes and charity fundraisers.
We operate under the umbrella term LGBT+ Students’ Network, and are open to people who self-define as being one or more of: lesbian, gay, bi, trans*, and/or any other sexual, romantic or gender minority including but not limited to queer, intersex, asexual spectrum and aromantic spectrum
How is it run?
How is it run?
The LGBT+ Students’ Network is headed by the LGBQ+ Officer and Trans Officers, who are voted for by all LGBT+ UCL students on an annual basis. All decisions are made democratically, with the committee and any LGBT+ student is invited to suggest and plan events or to give input on the direction of the Forum.
We have a committee which aims to represent the student body. Why not consider putting yourself forward for a position in 2022/23? Click on a role below to see a description of what it involves:

As an LGBT+ student, you are warmly invited to attend events (details can be found on the What’s On calendar), whether you’re completely new or you’ve been involved for years.
