soeophoto-dylanI’m Dylan, a third year sociology student. Throughout my time at Glasgow, I have been an active member of the student community, having worked with the SRC and on the committees of GULGBTQ+ and Amnesty International. Outwith campus, I’m proud to have taken part in organising an alternative Free Pride event last summer.
I should be your next Sexual Orientation Equality Officer as I possess the skills and qualities required to excel in this role. Having moved to Glasgow from a country where anti-homosexuality laws are similar to those of Russia, I fully appreciate the experience Scotland and our university have to offer, and want to ensure that every student has sufficient support to help them celebrate who they are. If elected, I will:
• Build strong working relationships with LGBTQ+, oSTEM, Queer Law and other relevant societies, reaching out to students and addressing the problems they face
• Work with other student bodies to repeat the success of this year’s LGBT History Month
• Join other welfare officers in tackling intersectional issues
• Push for changes to improve the LGBTQIA students’ experience, including more extensive equality & diversity training and a space on campus
