'Asexuality and agender - exploring the connections' by Dr Karen Cuthbert

Thursday 15th November
5-6pm, R0.04 (Ramphal)

[Facebook event link]

Dr Karen Cuthbert (University of Leeds) will discuss their research on asexuality and gender, focusing specifically on the finding that many asexual participants felt disconnected or alienated from gender, which led to a subsequent identification as agender, gender-neutral or gender-less. Furthermore, participants understood this through the explanatory framework of their asexuality. The talk will explore these connections, including wider points about the relationship that might exist between ‘gender’ and ‘sexuality’.

Friday 16th November

'Being LGBTUA+ at Warwick' Survey Findings - Part 1 (Trans Identities)

Monday 19th November
11:30am-12:30pm, Meeting Room 2 (SU HQ)
[Register here]

Following analysis of the 'Being LGBTUA+ at Warwick' survey data, we're issuing an invitation to attend this session on its findings. The survey looked at LGBTUA+ students' experiences of LGBTUAphobia & discrimination at Warwick, as well as experiences of hate crime in the local area, what contributes to them feeling supported (or not) by the University and the Students' Union, and what they feel needs improving to better support Warwick's LGBTUA+ community. This first session will focus on the experiences of trans respondents.

Trans Day of Remembrance is on Tuesday 20th November. Find out how to observe it here.
