Our work

Since 2014, the society has provided a safe space for all self-identifying LGBTQ+ students at the University of Stirling. Through events, campaigns and online petitions organised by our dedicated members, we work to hold leaders and decision-makers accountable for their actions, moving them to rethink what is possible.

Weekly meetings

Every Tuesday during the University semester, we provide a dedicated safe space for LGBTQ+ identifying students (we also more than welcome allies!). We regularly host social events for our members as well as educational events to increase awareness of community issues.

StirPride Week

Every year in February, we host our very own Pride week. Throughout the week, we host film screenings, talks and panels, as well as the camp grand finale, the Drag Show! In recent years, the profile of the event has increased, and is greatly enjoyed by students and visitors to the University.

TransAllyBot

In May of 2020, several societies in Stirling were targeted with vile transphobic abuse from several individuals on Twitter. In response, the society created TransAllyBot, a Twitter bot that can respond on behalf of users to hateful tweets. The bot can respond with over 20 commands, covering a variety of definitions and explanations.

#WelcomeAll

Our latest project, #WelcomeAll is a new business pledge for Stirling which aims to celebrate diversity and inclusion within the local Stirling community. The core aim of the pledge is to ensure everyone is welcome in their local community, regardless of their identity.
