Celebrating equality and diversity
Our exciting programme of events throughout February 2019 will include talks, workshops, performances, and film screenings which honour the lives and struggles of the LGBTQ community.
Through crossover events with the Cultural Exchanges Festival, we’re delighted to feature leading voices who have campaigned for LGBT rights. These include transgender model and activist Munroe Bergdorf and non-binary dancer Shiva Raichandani.
Students and staff will also have the chance to get involved in free sport sessions with DMUactive and support the #TakeAStand campaign, an initiative championing inclusivity and accessibility in university sport.
At DMU, we define ourselves as diverse, international and open to all. Our free-thinking equality, diversity and inclusion charter, DMUFreedom, puts inclusivity at the heart of everything we do.
We find strength in a community that prides itself on tolerance and acceptance, where everyone is free to be themselves and is encouraged to reach their full potential. We were thrilled to be awarded the first ever University of the Year for Social Inclusion by The Sunday Times Good University Guide as well as climb to our highest-ever place on the Stonewall 100 list – a recognition of our commitment to these values.
We’re grateful for the support of our partners including Curve theatre and Phoenix Cinema to present this vibrant programme.
