Nottingham Trent University celebrates LGBT+ History Month

 February 02, 2021

Nottingham Trent Students' Union (NTSU) celebrates LBGTQ+ History Month by running multiple remote events throughout the week.

NTSU is an inclusive, forward-thinking and ambitious non-profit organisation affiliated with Nottingham Trent University (NTU) that represents students and enhances their university experience through creating positive change.

NTSU aims to represent and celebrate its diverse membership, embed under-represented groups in decision making and planning, and lead conversation about Equality, Diversity and Inclusion on campus.

A week of workshops, panels and discussions

LGBT+ History Month is dedicated to celebrating the diversity of the LGBT+ community and their achievements. It is also a month for championing and defending the rights of all LGBT+ people.

NTSU's LGBT+ History Month activites start with a Transgender Mental Health Panel where transgender and non binary speakers discuss the challenges that they've faced with coming out and the time since. Another panel focuses on being LGBT+ in the workplace where students can hear the experiences of people from various industries including the NHS, legal professionals and large private UK companies. 

For those interested in the arts, NTSU is also hosting a documentary film night and book club to raise awareness of LGBT+ issues across the spectrum of sexuality and gender.

Finally, Aria Scere-Jacobs, member of House of Noir, a BAME (Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic) Queer Fashion Vogue House, is leading a fun and engaging introduction to vogue workshop introducing the NTU community to foundational movement of Vogue along with its origins.
