This Network is intended for all lesbian, gay, bisexual or transgender (LGBT) staff at Oxford Brookes University, University of Oxford (and its colleges), and Oxford University Press. 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.
Val McDermid (Best-selling crime writer and alumna of St. Hilda’s College) will return to Oxford to give the annual Oxford University Lecture for LGBT History Month. The lecture titled “A Queer-Like Smell”, in reference to her home town of Kirkcaldy and a poem by fellow Fife-er, Mary Campbell Smith, will touch upon themes of growing up gay in a world of silence and how finding her voice as a writer was tied inextricably to finding her gay self. Please join the Vice-Chancellor, Professor Andrew Hamilton and the Pro-Vice-Chancellor (Personnel & Equality), Dr Stephen Goss in welcoming Val to Oxford.
6pm on 6th February 2013 at The Jacqueline du Pré Music Building, St Hilda's College, Cowley Place, Oxford, OX4 1DY
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!

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
To join the mailing list, send a blank email to: email@example.com You will then receive a confirmation message (this may take a day or two). You may unsubscribe from the list at any time. Please don't send anything other than a blank message to this address as it is impossible for the list coordinators to read it! If you want to ask anything please contact any of the coordinating group below.
* Please note we prefer you to register with an email address ending in ‘.ac.uk’ although you do have the option of using an anonymous address for future correspondence. If you wish to use a non- .ac.uk address or have any problems registering please contact the list administrators. *
We look forward to welcoming you to the Network.
