UEA Staff Pride Network is a safe space for staff who identify as LGBTQIA+ to socialise and help inform and influence UEA policy and actions around issues relevant to LGBTQIA+ people. The network is well-established and has been up and running for over ten years, representing a diverse and vibrant community of staff who are always keen to welcome new members.

We would love to showcase some of our UEA Staff Pride members, who have stepped up as LGBTQIA+ representatives. Here, colleagues share what their particular LGBTQIA+ identity means to them, and their experience in life both within and outside of UEA.

If you would like to join our friendly and supportive LGBTQIA+ network, please get in touch via equality@uea.ac.uk
