Who We Are
Saints LGBT+ is a social and wellbeing group dedicated to providing an open and safe environment for people in the LGBT+ community- and allies - within St Andrews. As we are an Association subcommittee, every matriculated student is automatically a member and everyone, regardless of sexual orientation or gender identity, is welcome at any of our events.
From club nights to film nights, capture the flag to bonfires, there is something for everyone! Keep an eye out for the sell-out club night, DRAG WALK in February, the fantastic GLITTERBALL in April, and of course, St Andrews' iconic PRIDE parade, all of which will be bigger, better, and shinier than ever! Our socials are a really great way to meet other LGBT+ individuals, make friends and have a good time with people who may have similar experiences. It’s also a great way to meet new academic parents!
The social side of Saints LGBT+ is headed by our Social Officer who works to organize a variety of events throughout the year. If you have any suggestions for events you'd like to see, feel free to hit us up and we will try to help make it a reality.
Wellbeing & Support
University can be a difficult and stressful time, so we have an incredible Wellbeing team, headed by the Wellbeing Officer. The team is dedicated to bringing you a diverse range of educational and supportive events, such as speaker seminars, sexual health workshops, and outreach schemes.
We also run Identity Specific Meet-Ups for the POC, Disabled, Asexual/Aromantic, Trans/NB, WLW*, MLM* and Bi/Pan communities currently. Those events will be advertised through Facebook with a secret guest list and we also have identity specific Facebook groups (linked above) that you can find on our Facebook page and join.
Additionally, we understand that coming to your first LGBT+ event can be challenging, so we’re more than happy to meet up with you at the event, or prearrange something, so that you know you won’t be alone when you arrive! All of our committee members will also be clearly marked out, so feel free to approach them for a chat at any point during the events. The committee are all incredibly lovely and approachable – please do make use of them if you feel the need! We’re here to support you!
More details on how you can get support, including our Transition Guide, can be found on our website.
Interested in coming to our events? Check out our Facebook and the Union Events page to see what events we have coming up! You could also come along to our weekly committee meetings, which are open to all and take place every Wednesday from 7-9pm! Check out the other ways to get involved (through Facebook Groups, Subcommittees, Clothing Drives, etc) on our website.
Saints LGBT+ wants to make your University experience as amazing as it possibly can be! To find out more, check out our website, Facebook, Instagram, or drop us a message. We look forward to seeing you soon!
