This year we have added to the LUVS colours through creating a brand new society - LUVS LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) society is aimed to:
Gather all vets, creating an environment of support and fun
Be a visible demonstration to freshers of the inclusive nature the school possesses
Organise socials and activities, promoting a sense of camaraderie
Allow further integration between years
Educate the wider school community on issues affecting the LGBT+ community through organised talks
Develop philanthropy for local charities
So far we have had our first social which attracted a great group of people and participated in the internationally followed Spirit Day, where people wear purple to show their support against LGBT+ bullying. We had a huge number of students and staff participate and was a great cause for the vet school to support. Looking forward, we have another event and talks in the pipeline which, most importantly, are open to everyone! The future looks even brighter for our incredible vet school!
