PoliEdro (italian for polyhedron, recalling the word ‘poliedrico’ meening versatile, multifaced) is a student's association from
Politecnico di Milano involved since 2012 in raising awareness about socio-cultural issues related to the LGBTI+ community. Created by LGBTI+
students but addressed to everyone, PoliEdro aims at being a clear something to rely on for anyone looking for a debate on any topic linked to the
community. Thanks to the experience gained by the members, our mission is to help everyone who encounters any problem in the University
caused by their sexual orientation or gender identity. We organize various kind of events to tackle all aforementioned subject matters: interviews,
film showings, debates, informational events, and of course social gatherings. Furthermore, PoliEdro takes part every year in the preparation and execution
of the Milano Pride events and parade.
The goal of the association is to bring Pride to Politecnico and bring Politecnico to Pride, and also raising awareness about
important matters in LGBTI+ community and creating at the same time a space inside Politecnico where people can feel safe, express their identity
with the same freedom that we have during Pride.
