Huddersfield's LGBT+ (Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender) Network is for students who identify under the umbrella of LGBT+ in some way, including those who identify as asexual, intersex, queer and questioning. This is an intersectional networking group that aims to create change locally, institutionally and nationally for LGBT+ students.
The Students’ Union is working with LGBT+ students to ensure they have the best support and equal access to opportunities as every other student during their time at university. We are working to create awareness amongst everyone on campus that LGBT+ lives matter and to give a platform where all are free to express their experiences, address them and find a way to overcome them within a safe community.
We're looking for passionate and motivated students who identify under the umbrella term of LGBT+, to ensure that LGBT+ students are heard, better represented and voice their views from a position of authenticity.
LGBT+ Network members are volunteers. They offer their time to the scheme to run campaigns, challenge the university structures and ensure equality on campus for LGBT+ students.
If you would like to ask for support from the LGBT+ Network then please contact Raphaella Ward (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Keeping track of your activities as a LGBT+ network member is important, we can share information from the tracker about updates of changes, express any issues that might need support from the Students' Union and see what needs changing. All information shared is not strictly confidential, as we may look to action your comments.
