Noga Levy-Rapoport & Kirsten Marner-Foley
I’m Noga, I identify as queer and non-binary and use they/them pronouns; I’m Kirsten, I identify as a bisexual woman and use she/her pronouns – we are your LGBTQUA+ co-officers this year and our role is to represent and safeguard LGBT+ students across Warwick. Whether questioning, still in the closet, or out and loudly proud, we look forward to supporting you all this year!

Fun facts about us:
As a kid, I was incredibly attached to snails and collected many garden snails as pets :) – Noga

My role and what I hope to achieve this year:
Our overarching goal for this year is to create queer community and solidary across campus. University should be a safe space to discover who you are and express that, which can include everything from having fun socialising to self-care. The wellbeing of LGBTQUA+ students is incredibly important to us, especially as so many people across the community struggle with mental health and shared trauma, and so providing support specifically for this will be core to our role. We also want to ensure that students get a chance to engage with the wider history of our community, learning how we got to where we are today, and how we can continue to support queer liberation both on campus and beyond!
