Leicester Pride is Leicester's own annual LGBT festival, held at the beginning of September each year, celebrating equality and diversity in our community. The event was attended by more 10,000 people, with more than 2,000 taking part in the parade through the city.

The University of Leicester is proud to support and attend Leicester Pride. Our vibrant stand within the Wellbeing Tent was well received, and our staff and students had lots of fun connecting with people and providing information about the University and our LGBT+ Staff Forum and Student Society. 

We will continue our ongoing support for the LGBT+ community both within and outside the University, and hope to see you at the next Leicester Pride. 

LGBT+ Staff Equality Forum

Our LGBT+ Forum meets quarterly to discuss relevant issues. It was judged a ‘Highly Commended Network Group’ by Stonewall.
