Students invited to celebrate Pride at DMU in 2023

By Catarina Quintas

University is the perfect place for students to try to find out who they are and where they belong. To help them, De Montfort University is celebrating pride history month again in 2023.

In February, DMU will be organising a range of events to celebrate Pride History Month.

“I’m happy to see more and more people are starting to accept the fact that you can love whoever you want, regardless of their gender,” said a student who is a part of the LGBTQ+ community who did not want to be named.  

The month of February will have a ‘behind the lens’ theme with the goal to bring acknowledgement to the hard work and contribution that the LGBTQ+ community has put into film and tv programmes.

“I have an interest in seeing films directed by members of the LGBTQ+ community and am glad they are starting to get more recognition for their work,” the student added.

“I am actually looking forward to an entire month dedicated to celebrating this community, I know we have June, but being in a university that makes you feel ok with who you are is a great feeling.”

June is dedicated to celebrating everyone, because love is love and everyone should be proud to love who they love. June is also dedicated to show that being part of the LGBTQ+ community does not define you as good or bad, it defines you as real.

De Montfort University is now looking for alumni who are willing to take part in the organisation of this month and to provide support and or contributions. Whether they are part of the LGBTQ+ community or not, everyone is welcome.
