Trans colleagues and students are an important and integral part of our community. The perspectives and experiences of trans people make our University a richer place to work and study. It’s been a privilege to have been able to mentor trans members of the community and facilitate some of our students to attend Trans Pride over the last couple of years. I look forward to taking future opportunities to be an ally for trans people at Bristol.
