#FreshersToFinals: Understanding LGBT people’s perspectives on higher education
Lesbian, gay, bisexual and trans* (LGBT) young people are increasingly visible in policy and practice, often in relation to homophobic, biphobic and transphobic bullying. However, this can result in misunderstandings and/or over-simplification about all LGBT students’ needs and experiences. The #Fresherstofinals project is being undertaken by Sheffield Hallam University and seeks to develop a fuller understanding of LGBT experiences of higher education.
The project will culminate in two free events – booking is now open! Further details at the links below:
Manchester July 17th http://lgbtqatuniversity.eventbrite.com
Sheffield July 24thhttp://lgbtq-universities.eventbrite.com
The events are designed to feedback on the #FreshersToFinals project, and explore the implications for practice.
