SQUAD SOCIAL Named Official App of Student Pride UK

SQUAD SOCIAL has been named as the official app of the 2019 National Student Pride celebrations in the UK.

National Student Pride is an annual event held in February, focusing on empowering young people in the LGBTQ community. It attracts some 1,700 attendees for three days of debates, recruitment fairs, workshops and socialising.

This year’s student pride event takes place from 22-24th at the University of Westminster, and is centred around the themes “Activism” and “Pride not Prejudice”.

Other sponsors include Just Eat, Lloyds Banking Group, Asos and The Huffington Post. Sir Ian McKellen, podcast host James Barr, journalist Paris Lees and BBC presenter Evan Davis will also all be in attendance at the university’s Marylebone campus.

SQUAD SOCIAL founder and former Gaydar MD Rob Curtis said: “We are super excited to support the National Student Pride team by providing a digital experience to go alongside the programme on the day.

“The queer community has been crying out for a way to connect outside of bars and hook-up apps, so we can’t wait to show it off to attendees of this year’s event!”

Curtis appeared at GDI London 2018, hosting a session on gay dating apps and mental health. Find highlights from the conference here.

He also participated on an Intertech Diversity Forum panel at Mozilla Festival 2018. Find GDI’s coverage here.

SQUAD SOCIAL is set to launch next month.
