Newnham is a great place to be LGBT+! This means lesbian, gay, bi, trans*, asexual, questioning and everything else. Our events are open to EVERYONE – we frequently have a good mix, including straight, gay, non-Newnhamites and people from across the spectrum. Regular events are:
• the university wide LGBT+ clubbing night (Fusion)
• pizza & film nights in college, with a focus on hanging out in a relaxed environment (Quality of chosen films in no way guaranteed.)
• LGBT+ formals and swaps with other colleges
We have a dedicated LGBT+ Officer on the JCR committee who runs the college events, can provide sexual health supplies and confidential advice/support. If they don’t have the first-hand experience to help you themselves, they will be able to put you in touch with people who do. On that note, if you would like to find out more check out CUSU LGBT+’s website for information about events, campaigns and welfare. CUSU LGBT+’s Parenting Scheme for Freshers is a fantastic way to make new friends and meet people who can answer any questions you might have about LGBT+ (and indeed non-LGBT+) things in Cambridge.
Any questions? Please email Newnham’s LGBT+ officer (details on Committee page).
