Important Infomation

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. To find out more, check out our post on the Stonewall Uprising.

What do we do?

Through our campaigns, we aim to raise awareness, promote acceptance, and foster understanding of LGBTQ+ issues among students, faculty and staff.

Why is it important? 

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.

Here at your SU, we aim to ensure that everyone at Swansea University feels safe, valued and respected - regardless of their sexual orientation or gender identity.
