LGBTQ+ Allies Network

Welcome to the Department of Brain Sciences LGBTQ+ Allies network! As a network, we promote LGBTQ+ visibility in the Department and provide a bridge with the wider LGBTQ+ STEM community. We are open to everyone at Imperial including staff and students. Network members are happy to be approached and can provide support for LGBTQ+ related issues. Individuals who are interested in joining the network or contributing to its initiatives are encouraged to contact Alexi Nott (a.nott@imperial.ac.uk).

The network is highlighting the science and academic journeys of the LGBTQ+ community through the LGBTQ+ Brains blog led by Dragos Gruia.
