Monthly Informal LGBT+ Drop-in
The LGBT+ Staff Network holds monthly informal drop-ins mid-week at lunchtime during the first week of the month (on campus) and in the evening during the second week (in the Freedom Quarter). Drop-ins provide Network members (or those potentially interested in joining/finding out more) an opportunity to meet up informally, outside of its more policy-focused meetings and/or larger social events. Email: LGBT@leeds.ac.uk for details. PGRs are welcome.
