This conference seeks to bring together academics, researchers and activists to focus on research and chart a way forward which bridges the gap between academia and activism. It has been two years since UCU hosted the most recent LGBT+ research conference at the University of Manchester.

In 2021, this conference will be held online and will consist of three 2.5-hour sessions spread across three days, with regular breaks to ensure accessibility.

The conference in 2021 will be the 7th in a series following London (December 2000), Newcastle (2008), London South Bank (2012) Manchester (2015, 2017 and 2019). It builds on a commitment from a number of UCU Congresses to support such a conference in the interests of promoting these areas of study. It is the 6th such conference organised by UCU.
