Sussex LGBTQ+ Society

Sussex LGBTQ+ was founded in the late 1960's ("Sussex University Gay Soc" back then) and is one of the longest established student groups of its kind in the UK. We've got a pretty interesting history!

Today the society boasts over 300 members and an active society which engages in social events, welfare, campaigns, lobbying, representation and much more! We even have the most visited website of all the Students' Union societies.

Earlier this year we added the '+' to LGBTQ in order to help demonstrate our inclusion of all identities. 

We have Coffee afternoon (free beverages and biscuits) on Wednesday's from 1pm in the LGBTQ room during term time, and we also try to do something different every week (films, debates, nights out, workshops etc). They are a great opportunity to make friends and socialise. We're always open to suggestions for things to do, so feel free to come along with some ideas! Or email us your suggestions to
