‘CU STANDS UP’ WEEK: LBGT’S ‘BLOODY UNFAIR’ Every year CUSU runs a ‘CU Stands Up’ Week, which is a week of events showing everyone in the university what CUSU does. This year, CU Stands Up Week is Saturday 13 November – Saturday 20 November. CUSU LBGT’s day is Monday 15 November, so look forward to be introduced to our newest campaign, Bloody Unfair, raising awareness of the lifetime ban on men who’ve had sex with men donating blood, and the 12 month ban on females who have had sex with men who’ve had sex with men.

Members of the CUSU LBGT Exec will be staffing stalls and flyering 12-2pm on both the New Museums Site and Sidgwick Site. We’ll have flyers and information and will be there to talk to people about what CUSU LBGT does.
