I'm a gay male and I'm starting university in late September. However, I'm struggling to find any experiences of any gay male experiences at university. There is no videos on youtube, which is where I get my university tips from. I've tried looking for blogs, but I can't find any. Does anyone have any interesting blogs/video I can check up for some advice/stories? I know this may seem pointless or useless, but I love listening to experiences, and I want to listen to experiences that are going to be more relatable to me.

There's a few American College experiences of it, but I wanted to find something that's more UK Uni experience. But thanks for the suggestion!

It was really great! Lancaster University was an amazing experience for me, I felt welcomed and embraced and loved - never felt uncomfortable with my sexuality while there. The LGBT society is a good place for making friends and to be involved in queer related events and spaces. Although, Lancaster isn’t the biggest town and their student population is smaller than other universities, which means the gay population is much smaller. But you’ll have a brilliant time, good luck and have fun

Oml you actually responded Thank you so much!

Were you quite open about your sexuality before you went? I am not exactly the most 'out there' so am wondering how people may react if I was to accept and express myself a little more. Thank you for the advice, I will try and check out the LGBT society although I am a bit fearful as to how others may view me if they find out, what was it like?

Sorry about all of the questions and again, thanks

Prior to uni, I wasn’t really open, only to my close friends. But going to Lancaster, and joining the society and meeting other queer people, I really came into my own and embraced and loved my queer identity. I never had a negative reaction when I came out to people at Lancaster, people basically didn’t care, so don’t be worrying about that.

The society can be great! I particularly loved it. I met my first boyfriend there, made so many close friends from it, and it got me involved in queer politics - and broadened my mind on how I view my gender and sexuality. Also, it helps you get a shag xx

If you got any more questions on the uni, or other things, don’t hesitate to hit me up!

Thanks for this, it's really making me feel better. I sent a reply to this earlier but it didn't send 🙁

It sounds like you had a great time, just one single negative reaction could bring it all down but as you say I shouldn't worry so thank you! Really hoping I can have the same experience as you as I feel like I'm in the same predicament, never been open to many and properly accepted myself. I'm actually not after a shag, rather find a boyfriend instead (unless the libido calls for it, a shag may also help to find a boyfriend) 😆

P.S. did you find the people you made love to at the society?

Yep! Some were friends previously and then we did stuff. None started off as sexual, but ended with that. But there’s a ton of gay people that don’t go to the society, so that’s not the only place you can find gays. My current boyfriend I met through a guy I slept with actually, so it’s a super small word.

Are you from Ireland by any chance?

Would be cool to experiment a bit I guess with people that I meet on my journey in uni, and hopefully meet a partner . Maybe even in the same way that you did!

I probably will visit the society, if I feel confident enough at the time, to meet some others like you suggest and then become friends and take it from there. Not sure on the other methods of meeting people (..Grindr.. or finding out through friendships). Thanks for the advice
