The committee hosts and organises LGBTQ+ events and initiatives throughout the year including FinTrU’s participation in Pride, Lunch & Learn sessions, information evenings and Pride Breakfasts to name a few. FinTrU has marched in Belfast Pride since 2017, with record numbers attending each year.

LUNCH & LEARN

THE ORIGINS OF PRIDE

BY GEMINI GOLITA & ROBERT CLELAND

On Friday 2 August 2019 FinTrU’s LGBTQ+ committee, TrU Colours, held a Lunch & Learn on 'The Origins of Pride' with special guest local drag performer,

Gemini Golita.

 

​The Lunch & Learn focused on the origins of Pride highlighting LGBTQ+ history, where Pride came from, the impact of the Stonewall Riots as well as local LGBTQ+ history and statistics such as: 

  • In Northern Ireland 1 out of every 4 LGBTQ+ people have attempted to commit suicide.

  • Same Sex Marriage is still illegal in Northern Ireland.

  • Transgender people in Northern Ireland have a substantially higher waiting time and process to endure than those on mainland UK.
