Students sitting in the breakout space, socialising with each other


The Psychology Department is committed to equality for everyone, no matter what their gender identities or sexual orientations may be.

Lancaster has a LGBT+ Staff Network, who hold regular meetings and events, and communicate with members, staff, and students on LGBTQIA+ issues. They aim to raise awareness and the profile of LGBTQIA+ issues and ensure that there are visible role models at different levels of the organisation. The Students' Union also has LGBT+ student associations. For further details contact the Students' Union.

Many of our staff and students are part of the University’s LGBTQIA+ Ally Network. An LGBTQIA+ ally is a person who may or may not have the lived experience of a person in the LGBTQIA+ community, but who is willing to provide non-judgemental support to our colleagues and students who are in the LGBTQIA+ community. Many of the allies have a ‘Safe home base’ logo in their email signatures, so that they can be easily identified.
