 Postgraduate LGBTQ introductory chat - 14th February

To kick off LGBT History Month 2013, we're holding a discussion group for postgraduate students identifying as lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and/or otherwise queer.

This is a great opportunity to discuss issues important to you, with students in the same situation as you. We're eager to hear your experiences as an LGBTQ student studying at a postgraduate level - positive or negative. How has your time at Birmingham been so far? Is there anything you would change?

This is also an opportunity to get together and throw some ideas around on what we’d like to see happening in 2013. Film nights? Book club? Study group? Perhaps an LGBTQ-BBQ this summer? We'd love to hear all your suggestions.

We’d particularly like to hear from international, mature and part-time postgraduate students.

There will be free tea, cake, and coffee – looking forward to seeing you there!

Thursday 14th February at 5pm, at 3 Elms Road reception – ring the bell outside if the front door is locked.

If you would like some more information, have any difficulties getting to us, or would like to help organise the event, drop us an e-mail at birmingham.pg.lgbtq@gmail.com – or tweet us@ twitter.com/UoB_PG_LGBTQ
