Bishop Grosseteste University Students' Union made their presence known at Lincoln Pride with a colourful stand of freebies and useful information.
This year's Pride took place across Lincoln City Centre, with the main event held at Tentercroft Street car park and BGSU's stall pitched at the marketplace. Representing the Union and the University were BGSU President Connor Short, Vice President: Education Emily Allden, Accessability Officer Tristan Campbell-Owen and BGU Governance Officer Craig Ferguson.
Connor said:" We had a brilliant day, meeting new people, giving out freebies, and enjoying the buzzing atmosphere.
"Many of us found ourselves talking with young people who are currently looking at going to university and we were able to use this opportunity to talk about all the fantastic work done by both BG and BGSU to support the community. Lots of students commented on how friendly and approachable we were, which is always welcome feedback!
"The importance of this annual event can not be understated, it provides the people of Lincoln not only a safe space to express themselves but also an opportunity for local institutions and organisations to show their support as allies of the LGBTQ+ community."
