Incident at LGBT Pride Week Stall

An incident occurred on Thursday afternoon at the LSESU LGBT Alliance’s stall on Houghton Street. Remarks were made to members of the LGBT Alliance that were deemed homophobic, highly threatening and intimidating. LSESU and the School want to reiterate that homophobic, biphobic and transphobic behaviour of any kind will not be tolerated. We fully support the LGBT community at LSE and want to ensure that our campus remains an open and respectful environment. The Union and the School are thoroughly investigating the incident. Should you have any concerns, please email Matt White, the LSESU LGBT Officer (su.lgbt@lse.ac.uk) or Peter Howlett, the Dean of Undergraduate Studies (ug.dean@lse.ac.uk).
