Herts' LGBT+ Society is a friendly, open, sociable group for all Herts' LGBT+ community and allies. 

We run weekly support groups on Tuesday and Wednesday evenings  alongside bigger evening / night events such as film nights, gaming nights and our famous drag nights.

We are also here to provide you a voice in the university, working closely alongside the Students' Union, LGBT+ Staff Network and the Equality Office to help improve life on campus for LGBT+ students and staff. 

We launched the first University of Hertfordshire Pride back in February 2020 and have lead the calendar of events and activities for LGBT+ History Month 2021 and Pride 2021.
