A message from your VP Welfare and Community:

“Without the people who paved the way for the LGBTQ+ community, many of us, wouldn’t have the rights we do today.  We have still got a long way to go, but months like this mean that we continue conversations, to teach our allies and to keep fighting for our rights.”
