The SU LGBT+ Trans and Non-binary Reps have collated a guide to trans inclusion for the whole University. This is by no means an in-depth guide to trans issues but is a minimum requirement that we believe all members of the University should access.
The guide includes:
- An introduction to gender and definitions of terms you may not have come across before.
- A checklist on both individual and structural allyship that everyone, student and staff, should read and, more importantly, practice.
- A summary of University Policy that is important for trans students, such as changing names and crsIDs.
This guide is a tool and a means. What gives it power is putting what we have written into practice and meaningful change. Trans inclusion should be a priority for every JCR, MCR, College, Department, Fellow and student. Share this in the spaces you exist in. Codify it into policy. Make it institutional. Trans, non-binary and gender non-conforming people exist in all spaces and should be considered as such. We are so excited to finally share this with you, and for all that comes after.
