Hello from Manchester UK - I know how hugely impactful research can be from the change the Bisexuality Report led in the UK a few years ago. Are today's findings going to be presented in a report somewhere as well as in this (v welcome) presentation?
Jacqui Booth
37:33
This is making me soo upset seeing this :'(
Sophie Doyle
38:45
Hi from Wiltshire UK, although very upsetting to hear this research is so important and empowering to allow us to address the challenges faced by the LGBT+ student community
Anshuman Saluja
38:52
yes, and people are actually facing it out there.
Jacqui Booth
39:07
I totally agree Sophie. Its just appalling
Jacqui Booth
39:17
to read it
Sophie Doyle
42:14
Personally I am Bi but I consider myself to be attending as an ally because I have been fortunate never to have experienced this appalling discrimination, I feel so horrible thinking that people go through this on a daily basis so I'm keen to learn how I can take action at university and in the workplace to support my peers!
Muzammil Khan
44:03
Hii all... This is Muzammil from India... I'm a research scholar in Mathematics and Computer Applications...
Jacqui Booth
44:13
I'm straight but have friends and family who have come out. To think if any one of them went through any of these issues I'd be fuming. I want to help support all for an equal world and to understand things more.
J Frank
44:45
Universities often have specific student officers and advice services for LGBT+ that can help as a trans* man I often find gendered intelligence, mermaids UK and stonewall share information on how to be a good ally and help in the fight for LGBT2Q+ rights
Jacqui Booth
45:09
That's good to know J Frank, thank you
Stephen Tomlinson
47:05
How do you feel about the use of quotas for diversity and inclusion initiatives, e.g. having a minimum of 10% LGBT individuals in a company? Iā€™m not sure
Sophie Doyle
47:16
Thank you J Frank, I will make sure to check these out and will try to integrate them with the work my society is doing on campus, I'm sure this information would help a lot of people

Valuable and important conversations.. Thank you so much to all mygwork team and also the panelists.

Totally Tehzeeb. LGBT+ socs at unis vary so much from not just place to place but year to year as each incoming exec has different energies and attitudes. For me I stopped engaging with mine and found other local orgs that focused on bi space and on trans space. A few years later the uni soc was very different but its about how you experience it when you go there and that first impression.
Hayfa BEN FRAJ
