The universities belonging to the Network are Leeds, Huddersfield, Durham, Glasgow, Lancaster, Manchester, Newcastle, Sheffield, Sheffield Hallam, Strathclyde, Sunderland, and York.

In 2015-2016, #sexgen will continue to hold a series of free seminars (listed below). Seminars will be themed to reflect current and emerging themes in gender and sexuality studies.
