As our work centres on LGBTQ+ research and research cultures, we know that it is vital to have a solid backing of social support to meet our specific needs. The University has a range of social groups and professional networks to this end.  If you are running a LGBTQ+ professional network in any of the departments or schools here at Cambridge, and you would like it to be listed here, please drop us a line.
