IQ (Imperial College LGBT+)

Category: Social

We are Imperial's society for lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, queer and/or questioning (LGBTQ+) students. IQ is welcome to all and primarily aims to provide a friendly environment where you can meet other like-minded students, be it at a quiet film night, a night out, a cultural day trip or on tour. We usually have at least one event a week (sometimes three!) and we maintain good connections with other universities and attend each other's events. In addition to these social activities, we are also here to provide a safe-space support scheme. If students feel uncomfortable or questioning with respect to their sexuality or want someone to talk to about LGBTQ+ discrimination, our Welfare Officer is here to help. They are there as a first contact point to provide confidential support and act as a gateway to existing college and union services. We also have a Women's Officer specifically to redress the balance in what can sometimes seem like a male-dominated environment (especially at Imperial!). Our Postgraduate Officers are also available to represent the often under-represented postgraduates. If you are interested (or just curious) come along to our stall at Freshers' Fair or email Also if you have any issues or would like to talk to our welfare officer, email to organise a meet up, which will be completely confidential. See you around!
