Hello! I’m Martina, I’m a third year European Politics student and I’m honoured to be your LGBT+ officer for the 2020/2021 academic year.
I am committed to making King’s a safer and more inclusive space for all LGBTQ+ folks, so that we can all feel welcomed and accepted. I will work hard to ensure that your voices are heard and your identities valued, so that we can create a more intersectional space here at King’s, a space that celebrates diversity and empowers queer identities.
My goal for this year can be summed up in three words: visibility, inclusivity and unity.
Throughout the year I will be advocating for:
queering the curriculum
more support and visibility for QTPOC students
LGBTQ+ centred mental health support and career guidance
LGBTQ+ sexual health awareness
The Network will be running and supporting many exciting events this year, including Trans Awareness Week, LGBTQ+ History Month, mental health peer support groups, campaigns and virtual social events.
I will make sure to build a strong online presence so that events and opportunities are accessible to everyone, no matter where they are in the world!
University life can be difficult, especially for us, LGBTQ+ students, but the LGBT+ Network and I are here to ensure that you feel supported and to help you make your experience more positive.
If you have any concerns, doubts or suggestions, feel free to get in touch! I am always more than happy to hear from you and help you out in any way I can.
If you ever see me around campus, do not hesitate to come up and say hi! It’s pretty easy to spot me since I have bright orange hair. Otherwise, you can send me an email or message me on instagram or facebook.
I cannot wait to hear and meet all of you!
