Bristol is in Top Ten LGBT+ Student Cities


Bristol has been named the eighth best city for LGBTQIA+ students in a newly published poll, informed by the opinions of students, and the culture of different cities.  Newswire Pink News reports more, saying "Research by University Compare looked into more than 40 student cities in Britain to find the friendliest to the LGBTQ+ community.  It did so by comparing the size of the city’s queer population, local social groups and clubs, and interest in the area’s annual Pride event – as well as the number of recorded bigoted anti-LGBTQ+ hate crimes", which sadly still can occur even in relatively progressive cities.   A spokesperson for University Compare said: “Choosing a university is a big decision and understanding the inclusivity of its city is equally crucial. Our research into key aspects of LGBTQ+ life aims to empower students to make an informed choice about their education and potential new home."  London topped the list, Brighton was second and Cambridge, Manchester, Edinburgh, Oxford, Nottingham, Bristol, Bournemouth and Liverpool all featured.
