UCC Cork plays host to Pink Training

Pink training took place in Cork last weekend, an event that gives support and advice to members of the LGBT student community. Trinity’s LGBT society sent a delegation of over 30 students along with members of the SU Welfare committee, including the Welfare Officer, Steph Fleming.

The two-day event, held in UCC, featured workshops and talks on coming out and sexual empowerment. Other workshops for LGBT committee members were held on issues like conflict management and resolution and how to effectively manage an LBGT society.

The students also attended a night out in Cork itself on the Saturday evening. Stephen Keane, Librarian of the LGBT, said the event is primarily about fun and feeling good about being LGBT. “It pumps you up about being comfortable about yourself.”
The event is funded by the USI, the SU and the CSC.
