The LGBT* officer works to represent all students who identify as LGBT* here at Leeds Trinity University. They work throughout the year on a variety of projects sometimes collaborating with our LGBT* society. They also have involvement in our events for LGBT* history month.
Hey there, my name is Lewis Benn, I am currently in my third year of Education Studies, and I am your LGBT* Officer for 2018-2019.
As the university's LGBT* Officer, I want to promote any LGBT* values within the university wherever possible, whether this means obtaining rainbow shoe laces for the sports teams, celebrating LGBT* related events such as Pride Month, or allowing members of our wonderful university to become educated on the meaning of LGBT*. Every member of LGBT* is special; that includes anybody who is Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Transexual, Queer, Questioning, Intersex, Asexual, or Pansexual - But just as importantly, it includes anybody who considers themselves an Ally. I am also willing to become more educated in the world of LGBT* myself, so feel free to school me!
Asides from promoting LGBT* values, I also just want to be a shoulder to lean on for anybody who needs it, LGBT* or not.
Do I have any tips for new students? Sure:
For anyone who is just starting at university, allow me to congratulate you on making it here, you are going to have a blast! Good luck, and have fun! Heck!!
