Core theme: Mental Health
FREE daytime festival 12.30-5pm
We descended on the University of Westminster in full force in 2016, setting news agendas with our mental health debate.
- Will Young spoke freely about anxiety and his addictions
- Jaymi from Union J spoke just days after his band mate George Shelly came out about how music industry officials had told them to stay in the closet
- Adele Roberts called out the commercial radio industry which she said wasn't doing enough to make being open about your sexuality easy in on air roles

ALASKA 5000 cAME to Student Pride!
The RuPaul's Drag Race runner-up and member of AAA Girls Judged our very own version of Lip Sync Battle!
The project showcases portraits of LGBT people from a variety of backgrounds showing the 'outcome' of growing up, coming out and living life - their sexuality and gender haven't held them back. Now crowdfunded as a book, if you had your picture taken at our 2016 event, you may well be in it!
Polarised short film
Polarised is an independent documentary about LGBTQ+ mental health in London. Through interviews, dramatization, animation and poetry, the documentary will look at the realities of life under austerity for many young LGBTQ+ people. The film will focus on the stories and the plights of those often suffering in silence on the fringes of the mainstream LGBT community, fighting homophobia, cuts and mental illness
