Mailing Lists

What are the various e-mail lists?

This Network is intended for all LGBT staff* at Oxford Brookes University, University of Oxford (and its colleges), and Oxford University Press.  To join the mailing list, send a blank email to: ox-lgbt-acad-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk

*This includes post-docs, research fellows, academic, academic-related, non-academic staff, and post-graduate students.

This list is intended for Oxford University Staff only. To join the mailing list, send a blank email to: oxu-lgbt-staff-subscribe@maillist.ox.ac.uk

If there are other mailing lists we are unaware of, please let us know.

If you want to subscribe to either list with a non- ac.uk address one of the list administrators will ask you to email them privately from your ac.uk account to verify your eligibility.  This is just to protect those already on the list from potentially hostile outsiders!


How can I find you on FB?

We have a page which is public, which means that all members and anything posted to the page can be seen by anyone. You can "like" the page here: Oxford Area LGBT University Staff.

There is also a private group. Only members can see who is a member of the group and can see posts to the group. FB Events are set up using the group, and are also kept private. Because of how FB sets up private groups, it is only possible to be added to the group if you are a FB friend of someone who is already a member of the group. If you are not already FB friends with someone who can add you to the group, please message any member of the Oxford University Steering group (listed here: https://edu.admin.ox.ac.uk/lgbt-advisory-group).


See calendar below.

What events does the Oxford Area LGBT University Staff organize? 
We have three regular events: 1st Thursday Drinks, Cheap Eats, and LGBTea. Other events (e.g., movie nights, walks) are set up from time to time. Anyone can organize an event by e-mailing the social network mailing list and/or posting on FB.

What is 1st Thursday Drinks?

This is a casual after works drinks gathering held the first Thursday of every month from 6 pm at the University Club (on Mansfield Road). This is an opportunity to meet new people or catch up with friends in a relaxed friendly atmosphere. The club provides food if you’re feeling a little hungry, or you can just stop by for a drink. 1st Thursday is very informal, you don’t need to confirm whether you’ll be coming or not as we won’t be booking a table. We will have a rainbow flag on the table to help people find us.

What is Cheap Eats?

Cheap Eats meets the 3rd Sunday of every month and is arranged each month by a different member of the group. The idea is to find somewhere that costs around £10 (not including drinks) per person. Significant others and friends are welcome.

What is LGBTea?

LGBTea is a tea and coffee social. Members meet the 4th Monday of every month from around 5:30. The location is announced on the e-mail list and secret Facebook group. Significant others and friends are welcome.
