    Which colleges have the most open atmosphere / support for LGBT?
    We think all of the JCRs have either Equality/Diversity or LGBTQ Reps, the great majority of colleges fly Rainbow Flag and run LGBTQ+ awareness workshops in Freshers week and hold other events. A growing number also have gender-neutral washrooms &c. There has been a lot of change at Oxford over the past few years and we would expect more to follow.

    Perhaps TSR members at specific colleges could post some reflections about what their college is like?

    Tim Ramsay graduated from Brasenose a couple of years ago and now runs Just Like Us. He writes about this and his Oxford experience here: https://www.bnc.ox.ac.uk/about-brase...2-just-like-us

    I know Wadham has a trans rep and a queer event during the year, which certainly makes it very appealing! I remember seeing St John's flying the rainbow flag when I was there (in February, I think). I can't remember which one it is, but there's another college (Mansfield??) that has a gay reputation and apparently St Hilda's has a lesbian reputation.

    People have told me that Wadham is considered the most LGBT college. However, I've been told that if you're not a minority then they won't like you.
