The 2022 national theme: "Time for Change: Action Not Words"
October is Black History Month, an annual celebration of the history of Black people in Britain, highlighting their many contributions. This Black History Month we will focus on the national theme, ‘Time for Change: Action Not Words’, which calls for ensuring real change within institutions and real support from allies. There will be a range of exciting events taking place from a culture panel to music performances.

This year we have the honour to have ACS, QTIPOC Society and the Black Students Network collaborating with us on Black History Month, and they have prepared loads of initiatives and events to highlight and empower the black community of King’s in London. Have a look!
The first and only student group representing and supporting the unique needs of Queer, Trans*, & Intersex Students of Colour at KCL. Understanding that both racial and gender minorities face unimaginable prejudice, especially within the wider LGBTQ+ community, we aim to do the following:
Establish and deepen connections between queer, trans*, and intersex students of colour within the KCL community.
Create safe and inclusive spaces that address the unique needs of these often underserved, disenfranchised, and isolated communities.
Further the understanding of the wider KCL community on the specific experiences that these marginalised student bodies face.
Address and campaign for widening participation schemes that both explicitly and implicitly include queer, trans*, and intersex students of colour.
Decolonise LGBTQ+ advocacy across the KCLSU & KCL communities.
