Who are we?


Exeter LGBTQ+ Soc is a society at the University of Exeter dedicated to providing a safe space for those who identify as LGBTQ+ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer and questioning, as well as other sexual and gender identities such as asexual, intersex and genderqueer) to fully express their sexual orientation and/or gender identity without fear of intimidation or harassment. We also welcome straight allies, so don’t be afraid to come along to one of our events, whoever you might happen to be!

Our main goal as a society is to organise events catered towards our LGBTQ+ members, such as visiting BeYou, Exeter's most extravagant and inclusive night, Loud & Queer, our very own LGBTQ+ Open Mic night or just meeting every Wednesday at Pieminister for our casual weekly lunch. We also screen LGBTQ+ films throughout the year, host lectures given by academics from the university on a range of subjects from the AIDS crisis to Queer Theology and give our own talks on topical LGBTQ+ subjects. 

We are also involved in campaigning for LGBTQ+ rights, as well as raising awareness of issues regarding sexuality, gender identity and intersectionality on campus, with our Campaigns & Causes and Welfare Officers always more than keen to listen to your ideas and suggestions.

Facebook

Our Facebook presence is divided across two spaces:

  • A public page where all our events will be created & official announcements made.
  • A closed group, serving as a community/discussion space for members enrolled for this academic year.

Discord & Whatsapp

As more things may be online this year due to Covid, we as a committee have created a private Discord server and a whatsapp for all of our members. It is completely private for those of you who would prefer to remain closeted. We encourage everyone to join these servers, we will be posting most of our information for the year here or on our facebook page so make sure you're involved with one of them!
