Hi, I'm Alex and I'm a queer trans man. I'm running for re-election as Trans Students' Officer because I care passionately about trans rights, and know there is so much more we can do at Warwick and beyond.
So far this year, I have:
• Ran a series of workshops for staff and students on trans awareness, attended by over 60 students and 100 staff.
• Organised and ran Trans Awareness Week in October.
• Attended LGBTUA+ Taskforce Meetings
• Invited Jess Bradley (NUS Trans Officer) and facilitated their workshop on Transmisogyny.
- Tackle Hate Crime: Work with the local community, including local schools, to challenge transphobia and hate crime in the local area, as well as making hate crime reporting more accessible for trans students.
- Challenge Cisnomativity on Campus: I will run a pronoun awareness campaign and providing pronoun badges to students and staff.
- Preferred Name Usage: Pressure the university to change IT systems so that preferred names can be used in all possible situations.
- Expand the Trans Awareness Workshop series: Include sessions with Resident and Personal tutors, as well as other key teams.
- Improve the SU GUM Clinic: Work with the visiting sexual health clinic at the SU to make it a more welcoming environment for trans students and the wider LGBTUA+ community.
