The Pride Department (formerly known as the Queer Department) provides support, advice, and fun for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, intersex, and queer students at UWA.
Through regular social activities, notices, and activism the department aims to promote the visibility of LGBT+ students on campus and raise community awareness. The Pride Department is part of the Cross-Campus Queer Network (CCQN) which also advocates and hosts events that bring together students from multiple campuses.
We frequently get together to run movie nights, lunches, games nights, and discussion events. Occasionally we enjoy a night out in the CBD.
All students are welcome to attend events, meet like minded people, and hang out in the Pride Department room. The room is a safe space where students are welcome to take a break between classes, socialise, have a tea or coffee, and take advantages of resources like our DVD and book library, fridge, microwave, and kettle. Many of our events are held here.
In addition to these things we also have a wide variety of information and resources from other organisations available to students.
