Lesbian, gay, bisexual and queer+ officer
This month I have been working with the trans+ officer and the LGBT+ Students Network on Campus Pride, which will be taking place on the 1st June. This event is a fun and educational time for LGBT+ students and a celebration of the LGBT+ community. There will be lots of activities, such as face painting and a glitter stall, local LGBT+ friendly businesses as well as music provided by Rebel Radio.
This month also saw the change of the graduation clothing policy for all students. The new policy is gender neutral and is aimed at making sure all students graduating feel comfortable in what they wear to the ceremony. You can find the new policy at essex.ac.uk/graduation and the LGBT+ Network statement on the SU homepage.
We will now be working on the Network's plans for next year and making sure that the new officer, Vinnosh, is prepared for the role.
