Welcome to the Eton Dragonflies, the alumni association for former LGBTQ+ pupils of Eton College.
Established in 2010, our purpose is three fold:
1) To arrange social events for LGBTQ+ Old Etonians of all generations to reconnect with old friends and make new ones. We have an annual summer drinks, held with other public school gay alumni societies, and a more intimate winter dinner, along with other informal drinks, theatre outings, talks and exhibitions throughout the year.
2) Deliver educational outreach to Eton College, supporting their diversity and inclusivity programme with talks by LGBTQ+ former pupils on subjects such as homophobia in schools. We also liaise with the school LGBT Society on helping provide guest speakers for their events.
3) To provide a safe space for LGBTQ+ Old Etonians who may not yet be out in their professional or personal lives. We take your privacy extremely seriously and no data is shared with other members without your express written permission.
We have members across the generations, from 1946 to recent leavers, with a wide range of interests and occupations.
