If a student identifies as LGBTQ+ or is questioning their sexual or gender identity, there are a huge range of groups and organisations based in London that can offer support and advice, as well as enabling students to connect with other young people who identify as LGBTQ+ in a fun and safe space.
- This type of uncertainty could impact on a student’s academic studies.
- QM LGBTQ+ Society is a community of LGBTQ+ students who hold regular social events in order to provide a community and safe space for all LGBTQ+ students on campus, and is one of the five largest societies in QMSU.
- Queen Mary provides a range of specialist services to support and enhance the student experience and to assist students dealing with any challenges that they face during the course of their studies.
Think about how a student might feel disclosing this type of information to you. Students might feel isolated, scared, alone, and not have anyone they can turn to for support or advice. It might also be important to note that their particular situation could involve cultural implications. These students may need emotional and practical support. Queen Mary offers a range of support for students in this situation.
