MedPRIDE Leicester

Logo for MedPRIDE Leicester incorporating LGBT+ flagMedPRIDE is a student staff group formed in December 2023. The aim of the group is to lead and progress the student/staff MedPRIDE activity at Leicester Medical School (LMS). 
We meet every 6 weeks and all students and staff are welcome to join the group, regardless of identity. 
The objectives of the group are:

  • To support a coordinated approach to the implementation of the UK Medical Schools Charter on So-Called LGBTQ+ ‘Conversion Therapy’ 
  • To develop and implement strategies to address inequalities related to sexual orientation, gender identity and intersex traits through student/staff partnership
  • To work with other LMS Equity, Diversity and Inclusion groups to provide a forum for sharing challenges and best practice from within and outside LMS
  • To develop effective communication and engagement plans to embed MedPRIDE principles across the School (College and wider University). 

MedPRIDE Leicester works closely with MedRACE and MedDIaLect to progress equity, diversity and inclusion in all aspects of medical education, training and beyond. The three working groups feed into the LMS Inclusion Oversight Committee. 


We welcome new student and staff members and we invite collaboration with other institutions. The MedPRIDE Leicester working group can be contacted at
