2018-19 Campaigns: 'Hello, my pronouns are...' (Michael Turner and Niamh Cubitt)

No ratings yet. Log in to rate.

Hello, we are Niamh and Michael, and we are your LGBT+ and Trans reps (respectively). Feedback from students suggests that for some people, it is difficult to have a conversation about pronouns, while others don’t feel comfortable enough to explain their pronouns. With this campaign, we want to create a welcoming and comfortable environment that prompts healthy conversations about pronouns on campus.

We will be looking to get feedback through an initial trial period, with a view to eventually offering the opportunity to add more pronouns to the selection, as well as alternative designs to the badges.

CAMPAIGN AIMS:

  • Generate a dialogue about pronouns and identity
  • Improve the university experience for both cis (people who identify with the gender they were born with) and trans students. 

CAMPAIGN UPDATES:

The badges have arrived...!!!! Check out our launch on Monday, February 4th during LGBT+ History Month!

Did you pick up a pronoun badge and have feedback or stories about how your experience was wearing your badge?
