Hi, I’m Nat and I am your LGBT+ Officer.
I’m elected to represent LGBT+ students and make sure they feel safe on campus. This year, with my committee I am going to start the process of installing gender neutral toilets across campus (and with the help of your VP activities, install gender neutral facilities in the sports hall). I also want work with LGBT+ students to produce an LGBT+ report which will be taken to the University to lobby them to make amendments to campus and/or policy to ensure that all LGBT+ students are safe and visible. My role within your Students’ Union is to collect feedback from you, the students, to make an impact on and off campus, so please let us know your experience as a University of Lincoln student and how we can support you! You can become a member of the LGBT+ Campaigns Group for free by clicking the ‘join’ button below.

What's planned/What they've done
Since July, we have written to the equalities minister Elizabeth Truss, asking her and the government to ban conversion therapy, after their lack of response to a petition that was asking for the government to ban the practice. We have also had talks with VP Activities, Abi, about beginning the process of getting gender-neutral toilets across campus and gender-neutral changing facilities in the sports the centre. Throughout the year we’ll be working on putting together a LGBT+ report full of student feedback to take to the University, asking them to make change and ensure that Lincoln is a safe place for everyone, no matter their identity. We will also be working on on year Transgender Day of Remembrance and LGBT+ History month events. IF you want to get involved in any of this then please join us!
