What does an LGBT Staff network do?

The LGBT Staff Network is a grassroots community organisation that aims to be different from any of the other, numerous, committees and working groups in Trinity. Our projects are driven directly by our members and include a diverse range of activities - regular social events, film screenings, workshops, performance events and active contribution to College policies affecting LGBT staff.

The Network is always aiming to expand and develop, if there's something you'd like to see us contribute to (or an event you'd like to organise yourself!) just let us know.

The LGBT Staff Network is a great way to meet people across Trinity - it helped me get involved with some exciting events outside my department and make LGBT friends.
