LGBT Historical Exhibition



York LGBT Forum are working with York LGBT History Month, York Pride and the York Castle Museum to create a LGBT+ historical exhibition. They need stories, pictures and objects to include in the display and would love input from asexual, queer, lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans individuals.We would like to encourage York St John staff, students, alumni and partners to contribute to this great idea. The exhibition will be in June, in the run up to York Pride. For more information and to share your ideas, please email Jake on:

I work in international student recruitment and over the few years at York St John University, I have undertaken various roles with international focus. I have always been keen on being involved with the wellbeing of students in general, but particularly international students, as in terms of cultural transition, they have so much to overcome. I was involved with Equality and Diversity at York St John Students’ Union during my undergraduate studies, and this interest has transferred to my work, as I am now one of the University’s Equality Champions. LGBT+ topics and the community are very close to my heart. I am a proud Stonewall Ally and feel very passionate about supporting my LGBT+ colleagues and friends, as well as the wider LGBT+ community.
