Through different initiatives, our campaigns raise awareness, promote acceptance, and foster understanding of LGBTQ+ issues among students, faculty and staff.
We organise events, workshops and social events to celebrate diversity and provide a platform for open discussion. We aim to ensure that everyone at Swansea University feels safe, valued and respected, regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.

Creating a safe, inclusive and supportive environment for all members of the LGBTQ+ community is important to us at your SU. We want you to feel welcome and free to live as your authentic self.
As well as continuing to support and welcome our LGBTQ+ students, we promote and celebrate equality and diversity during LGBTQ+ History Month as well as Pride Month, commemorating those who have and are continuing to fight for equality.
To coincide with the abolition of Section 28 the charity Schools OUT UK initiated LGBTQ+ History Month in February 2005.
Pride Month is celebrated worldwide in June to commemorate the Stonewall Uprising, which took place in 1969 in New York City. The Stonewall Inn is a popular gay bar in Greenwich Village, and at the time of the uprising, it was subject to police riots and harassment due to discriminatory laws and societal prejudices against homosexuality at the time.
