City is a great place to study for people of any sexual orientation and gender identity or expression. Last year we were the third most active society by official membership and won the Society of the Year award from the City Students' Union. We hosted a club night "Love is a Human Right" with the Amnesty Group, which was one of the busiest nights of the year in our Union bar and for which we were awarded Joint Event of the Year by the Students' Union. University is where many people discover and explore their identities, making new friends and being exposed to new and different ways of thinking and seeing the world.
