The LGBTQ+ Society plays an enormous and exciting role in structure of the vibrant queer community at Oxford. The society runs a popular drinks event and club night every Tuesday along with a myriad of welfare and identity specific events every single week. The Oxford LGBTQ+ scene is already unlike any other at any university in the country, yet we think it can still be better. The society’s huge reach, combined with its yearly income from sponsors and events, creates the potential (among other things) for larger events, notable guest speakers, and better support all round.
After the last round of elections in Hilary, the following positions remain unfilled; Class Rep, Disabilities Rep, RaEM Rep.
Roles up for election
Racial and Ethnic Minorities Rep x1 - As the Racial and Ethnic Minorities officer, you'll be responsible for organising events thrice a term, ranging from welfare teas to pre-drinks prior to Tuesday Drinks. It's a small but great community, and keeping up engagement with LGBTQSOC is an essential part of the role. Ashar Aslam - firstname.lastname@example.org
Disabilities Rep The Disabilities rep will be the point of contact for all members of the community who identify as having a disability, encompassing physical disabilities and mental health conditions. They will host three socials per term, and provide support and welfare. They will ensure LGBTQ+ people feel welcome at our events, thinking about welfare, social, awareness and accessibility within the community. Contact Prez or Secretary- email@example.com or firstname.lastname@example.org
Class Rep The Class rep will make sure that working class voices are heard within the LGBTQ+ community. They can run socials for working class LGBTQ+ students, work on making sure that LGBTQ+ events aren’t prohibitively expensive, and liaise with OxfordSU’s Class Act.-- Elliot Frame - email@example.com
