The LGBT+ Officer
The LGBT+ Officer is responsible for all self-identifying LGBT+ people in College, making sure they have a happy and safe time here, through events and campaigns. As well as an organising role, the LGBT+ Officer also offers welfare support for those that request it. The support offered is non-judgemental and confidential and not limited to self-identifying LGBT+ members of college. The LGBT+ Officer’s experience of college and Cambridge has been very positive but any discriminatory behaviour reported will be treated seriously by not only the LGBT+ Officer but the whole welfare team, and dealt with appropriately.
Events are advertised primarily through the mailing list, which can be joined by signed up to the attached form. The LGBT+ Officer works in conjunction with the College’s LGBT+ Society, 1TQ, to organise a variety of events which in the past have included Freshers drinks, film nights, bar nights, as well as a Christmas Party and a Garden Party. The mailing list is also used to advertise events which are going on around Cambridge, especially those advertised by CUSU’s LGBT+ autonomous campaign. The LGBT+ Officer is always welcome to ideas for events!
