Welcome to the UEA Staff Pride webpages

New members (LGBT+ or allies) are very welcome and the group is steadily growing with both work-based and social meetings. The University also has organisational membership of Stonewall and aims to be taking initiatives connected to the Stonewall Workplace Equality Index over the next year so it's a good time to get involved.


May 17 is International Day Against Homophobia, Transphobia and Biphobia (IDAHOBIT).    To celebrate, there will be a free screening of the film "Paris is Burning" on 17 May 2018 in Lecture Theatre 4, UEA, at 6pm - all are welcome.

"Paris Is Burning is a 1990 American documentary film directed by Jennie Livingston. Filmed in the mid-to-late 1980s, it chronicles the ball culture of New York City and the African-American, Latino, gay, and transgender communities involved in it. Some critics consider the film to be an invaluable documentary of the end of the "Golden Age" of New York City drag balls, and a thoughtful exploration of race, class, gender, and sexuality in America."
