Welfare | Social | Campaigns
Warwick Pride is a Welfare, Campaigning and Social society for lesbian, gay, bi+, trans*, undefined, aromantic and asexual (LGBTUA+) students - and their friends!
We've had a lot of new faces already on our website, but here is an official 'Welcome' to all those new to the society! Most of you will have found out if you're coming to Warwick now so if you are don't be afraid to get stuck in on the facebook group and/or forums and introduce yourself if you're thinking of joining the society.
If you decide to join the society you will receive weekly emails containing details of the week's events, along with a summary of the events to come in the following week. This is a brilliant way to stay in the loop about what we have planned for you, and what you can get involved with whilst at Warwick.
We aim to provide you with safe, friendly and sociable spaces in which you can meet other students during your time at University. We provide information, advice and support for those coming to terms with their sexuality through schemes and events like our befriending service and parenting scheme and coming out workshops.
We are able to offer a great deal of information on sexual health and safer sex, and provide free safer sex materials including condoms, flavoured condoms, and lubricant, dental dams and latex and non-latex gloves. These can be found in the Warwick Pride Pigeonhole, number 484, in the Student Activities room (upstairs in SUHQ).
We also campaign on various issues on behalf of the LGBTUA+ community both within the university and in the wider community. We raise awareness of the issues facing LGBTUA+ people and campaign for changes when we feel they are needed.
Of course, like most societies on campus, we do lots of socialising too! We run weekly coffee socials, organise weekly clubbing trips to Coventry or Birmingham, hold breakfast socials, run film screenings, Society meals, campaigns meetings, debates and talks. We also organise annual programmes of events for IDAHoBiT and Warwick's LGBTUA+ Awareness Week. There’s a bit of something for everyone, and we’d love to see you around!
To contact Warwick Pride you can email us at firstname.lastname@example.org . Alternatively you can write to us at Warwick Pride, Pigeonhole 484, University of Warwick Students' Union, Union North Building, University of Warwick, Coventry, CV4 7AL.

A note about joining the society:
If you are a current Warwick student (or starting in October) we recommend you choose Standard Membership as this will enable you to vote in society elections (or stand as a candidate). If you are a graduate or a member of the public then you must join as an Associate Member. Membership of Warwick Pride does not require you to be a member of the Societies Federation, so the cost to join the society is just £3 (Societies Federation membership is required for most other societies).
