Tea Time with Taj (TTwT) is an event created to offer a safe space for LGBTQ+ students at KCL, where they can relax and decompress without any expectations. TTwT has a keen focus on promoting wellbeing and self-care through community and peer support. In addition to sessions for all LGBTQ+ students, TTwT has sessions dedicated to centre the voices and experiences of underrepresented groups within the LGBTQ+ community. TTwT offers different activities each session such as special guests, crafting or simply just chatting in good company. TTwT also always offers free tea and light snacks for the attendees.
