Huge student pride weekend will kick off LGBT history month

National Student Pride

Thousands will celebrate LGBT History Month this weekend, as students from across the UK head to London for the annual National Student Pride.

The yearly weekend event will kick off on the University of Westminster’s campus on Friday (5 Feb) in the UK’s hottest LGBT nightclub, G-A-Y Heaven.

Across the weekend students will experience LGBT discussions, art and film screenings as well as a careers fair from some of the UK’s top LGBT graduate employers.

Celebrities Will Young, Dustin Lance Black and star of the controversial YouTube video ‘I Did Gay Porn & I’m Sorry‘, Calum McSwiggan will all debate and champion mental health; which is this year’s theme of choice.

RuPaul’s Drag Race runner-up Alaska will also be judging a special Lip Sync Battle.

The weekend will boast an exclusive screening of Milk, at the Regent Street Cinema; the UK’s first moving picture cinema, which was recently reopened by the university.

Day tickets are free, and weekend tickets, which include entry to all the club nights are still available for just £5 from National Student Pride here.

National Student Pride marks the start of celebrations throughout February for LGBT History Month, including a line up of events being held at Nottingham Trent Students’ Union, including film screenings, special panels and NTSU’s newly launched LGBT club night ‘Neon’.
