LGBT+ Representative (BL)

Amelia Jones

My name’s Robert, I’m a third-year medical student and I’m BL LGBT+ Rep for this year.

I’ve got lots of fun events planned like making sure we keep up our pride week plans, quizzes and fun charity events. But I also want everyone to appreciate the issues felt by this community, helping improve how the university approaches LGBT+ topics with dignity, have talks on some big issues and organising forums to start some great debates.

At its heart, this role is to make sure that all students especially those in the LGBT+ community have their voices heard, ensuring inclusivity and making sure that all students feel their own form of pride.
