Both candidates Nell Beecham and Tom Martin have extensive experience with LGBT issues in the University. Martin is Goodricke college’s LGBT representative, and both hold positions in the LGBT social committee.
The primary goal of their campaign is “increasing the awareness of LGBT issues” and both are strong advocates of “welfare through education”. Their policies will focus on “blood donation, the sex education bill and trans awareness day.”
The pair hope to “branch-out”, and integrate LGBT with other campus societies. They hope to offer a view on LGBT issues that is “both passionate and united.”
Martin and Beecham emphasised the “thirst within our community for events that offer information and opinions on issues that affect us. These events bring the members of our community together. Through education, we believe that better welfare will be achieved for all.”
