About Me.

Hey! I'm George, and I'm your LGBT+ Officer this year. I'm also currently an undergraduate in the School of Computing, and serving as its school representative. As LGBT+ officer, I aim to make a real positive difference to the university experience of my fellow beautiful queer people, and I aim to represent each and every one of you with passion, determination, and enthusiasm. Please feel free to reach out to me with any ideas you have, issues you're facing, or even if you just fancy a natter; I love meeting new people and I really don't bite!

My Aims.


Increase access to trans-specific resources within the student wellbeing service.

Assist in establishing an LGBTQ+ safe space inside the Frederick Douglass Centre (in progress).

Allow minorities to speak for themselves. Only you know your lived experiences!

Represent all LGBTQ+ students effectively, free from bias or judgement.
