Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Trans (LGBT+) History Month ’21 planning committee – join now

October 30th, 2020

The University is preparing for LGBT+ History Month celebrations in February 2021.

We are looking to put together an effective programme of events that celebrates LGBT+ history and provides education and insights into LGBT+ rights.

There is an opportunity for up to 6 members to join the planning committee and contribute to how the University recognises and celebrates LGBT+ History Month.

This opportunity is open to all job roles and staff at any level.

If you are interested in joining the planning committee and shaping the University’s delivery of LGBT+ History Month events, please fill out this form by 12pm on Thursday 12 November.

The first meeting of the planning board will take place on Wednesday 18 November, from 1.30pm-2.30pm. Meetings after this will reoccur every Thursday, from 1.30pm-2.30pm.

The committee members will provide a steer on the themes and content of the recognition month celebrations, as well as have responsibility for the planning and delivery of institutional events. They will also be expected to review and decide on funding applications for local events.

As part of the planning process, we welcome ideas for themes or events. Please share these using this short form.

All contributions, input, and feedback are highly valued. Please get in touch soon so that your views can be considered in the organisation of this celebration.

Co-chair of the Sphere Programme Board, Amal Treacher Kabesh said:

“LGBT+ History Month is an important time to provide knowledge that has previously been rendered absent. The in-depth discussions that will take place will provide a vital focus for reflection and celebration. The various events will create spaces to explore the diverse opportunities, alliances, and joys of the LGBT+ communities.”

For queries please contact Catherine Abe and Eli Todorova. Please note that applications sent directly to these email addresses will not be accepted.
