OFFICER REPORT

Lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans* officer

Over the past few weeks I have been working towards getting an LGBT* resources pack ready in time for Freshers, which has been completed. This pack contains a number of contact details and websites that will be useful for LGBT* students, and contains a mixture of university resources and ones further afield.

I have also been working with our BAME Officer to include an LGBT* and BAME event for Black History Month. Details of this shall be released by Leshandra shortly!

I have also been working with various members of the SU to ensure that questionnaires and surveys done by the SU are as inclusive as possible, and so shall contain many more options for gender and sexuality. I have also been working to ensure that all of the SU’s LGBT* info is consistent and up to date.

This month I have also been working to make sure that our LGBT* night out on campus, Ignite, is ready to go for Freshers! Ignite will be happening on the 13th of October in Base Bar; the theme is Traffic Light Party!

Myself and the other liberation PTOs have been working very hard to make sure that the student idea Student Networks is well implemented and represents the entire SU membership as a whole. We're very excited to start the Student Networks; look out on our social media for dates, times and locations!
