Representing all things LGBT+ in the Student's Union

My name is Sam McLaughlin, a second year geography student and an avid member of the LGBT+ society. I have a keen interest in campaigning for LGBT+ rights and aim to immerse myself fully into raising awareness of LGBT+ issues. If elected as LGBT Officer, I intend to:

  • Organise a week long event celebrating different sexualities and gender identities within the LGBT+ spectrum
  • Ensure that the union maintains a zero tolerance policy to instances of hate crime towards the LGBT+ community, and raise awareness about how to report hate crime
  • Run a campaign focused on eliminating stigma associated with mental illness amongst individuals defining as LGBT+
  • Commemorate the days dedicated to the LGBT+ community across the year and fully acknowledge LGBT History Month
  • Publicise LGBT+ issues in the media from across the world via strong social networking links
  • Strive to have campaigns and the presence of the LGBT Open Place PTO felt at bay campus as well as singleton campus.
  • Work closely with the current LGBT+ society and the Student’s Union to provide awareness of the campaigns held across the campuses
