This Network is intended for all lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) staff at Oxford Brookes University, University of Oxford (and its colleges), Oxford University Press and Ruskin College. This includes post-docs, research fellows, academic, academic-related, and non-academic staff. Staff at other universities and research institutes etc. in the region are also welcome to join. Similarly, while the group is primarily intended for staff, post-graduate students are welcome to join the list and attend events if they wish.
There is a flyer about the official Oxford University staff LGBT group available too.

What does the group do?
We organise social events and act as a clearinghouse for information which may be of interest to local LGBT members in Higher Education. Our current popular event is "cheap eats" on the third Sunday evening of each month. The organisation rotates among members and the event is normally well-attended in various economical restaurants in Oxford. Join the mailing list if you are interested in coming along! (pictures from October 2008, all subjects appear with permission, pictures thanks to Gordon).
The Network email mailing list provides an easy way for subscribers to share information. For example, you could post details of forthcoming meetings or social events, request information about a particular topic e.g. pensions, adoption leave, civil partnerships, etc… The number of messages is likely to be small so your inboxes won't be swamped. Only those subscribed to the list will be able to send or receive messages and your email address will not be divulged to other list members without your permission. There is also a Facebook Page for those interested in more interaction with other like-minded souls. If you would prefer to join the secret facebook group (that won't show up in searches or on your profile) please contact Tony Brett
