Event Overview

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.

Upcoming Sessions

Sessions will be advertised here from September 2024!

Additional Support: Internal

Need additional support before, after or in-between Tea Time with Taj sessions? We have teamed up with the Faculty Wellbeing Advisors (FWAs) to enable TTwT attendees to speak to a FWA with LGBTQ+ lived experience. All you need to do is email [email protected] with your student number, KCL email and faculty and mention that you have been referred via Tea Time with Taj. You can find the King's Student Data Collection Notice here and find out more about how the Faculty Wellbeing Advisors can support students in this video. The advisor in the video also has lived LGBTQ+ experience and his staff profile can be found here
