Inclusive for all
Our university's LGBT group is a network for matters related to sexual orientation equality and is open to all staff and students.
Leeds Beckett University is a strong supporter of sexual orientation and gender identity (SOGI) equality. The network acts as a staff/student voice on SOGI issues within our university’s community. We value working intersectionally with other staff/student fora and action groups across our university, with strong links to LGBTQIA+ networks in the wider community and other higher education institutions in Leeds.
LGBTQIA+ is a common abbreviation that embraces a matrix of various sexual orientations and gender identities, the letters stand for: Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual/Pansexual, Trans, Queer/Genderqueer, Intersex and Agender/Asexual/Ally, with the + indicating that the list is far from complete.

Our Code of Practice on Trans Equality and Gender Identity sets out our responsibilities for trans students and staff. You can find out more information on our Trans Support page.
The making of 'Mathew & Me'
In this short documentary Professor David Carless talks about his one-man show ‘Mathew & Me”, about song-writing, sexuality, same sex attraction and growing up in the hegemonically masculine world of sport. Here he shares insights about how music and songs provide a medium through which others can access or share feelings of silence, isolation, shame and challenge homophobia.
