Eich Bwyllgor 2011-12
LGBT History Month
As part of LGBT History month, there are many events being held by the LGBT+ Association and the society, ranging from quizzes to film screenings on LGBT history. However, there are also many other events going on in Cardiff this month to celebrate our history. Lots of these events are free and there is a real variety!
As part of Refreshers Week 2012, the LGBT+ Association had a stall in the Studentsí Union on Tuesday January 31th for Refresh your Health and Wellbeing day. The stall was themed around anti-bullying as this is a topic that the campaigns committee feel strongly about. We believe that bullying is still a problem at University and that this is often neglected as students donít see offensive comments or online bullying as a problem. However, using some healthy vegan beetroot cake to entice people in, we talked to lots of students about these issues, then asked them to sign our poster saying they were against bullying at Cardiff University. After several hours of giving out lots of leaflets, cake and collecting a few hundred signatures, we felt that a successful day was had! Thanks to everyone who signed our poster, and who has maybe given the idea of bullying at University a little more thought.
