LGBT+ Students

The LGBT+ students' network

The LGBT+ Students' Network brings together all students from across all 3 campuses that identify as a member of the LGBT+ community.

We are a support network and social group that aims to:

  • Enable students to come together to share information and provide support. 
  • Provide social activities and representation for the members. 
  • To ensure there is a comfortable and fully inclusive environment in which LGBT+ students can reach their full potential without fear of discrimination.
  • Provide a space to raise instances of bullying and harassment.

LGBT+ OFFICERS

Vinnosh Jaya Kumur

LGBQ+ OFFICER
Law (LLB)

Hello everyone! My name is Vinnosh, but most people know me as Vinny. I am currently in my 2nd year of Law and work at the infamous Kitchen on campus. The 3 places that you will normally find me loitering around is the SU Kitchen, SU Reception, or the Law Common Room.

My plans for this year include pushing the peer mentor scheme forward, increasing LGBQ+ student engagement and creating awareness on predominant LGBQ+ social, legal and cultural issues.

JESTIN BARTLETT

TRANS+ OFFICER
 

Hi, I’m Jestin, I’m studying Computer Systems Engineering, I am the treasure of the Juggling, Fire and Magic Society, and a member of the LGBT* & Friends society.

My plans for the year are to make campus safer and more accepting of both transgender and non-binary students; by increasing the amount of gender neutral toilets around the campus, and to push for equality and diversity training for all staff.
