    Increase Representation on the student council

      The LGBT+ community is a large and diverse one and that is reflected in the students here at staffs. Currently The LGBT+ network chair sits on the student council, which is great! but in periods when the chair of the LGBT+ network is a cis person I feel that Trans students can not be fully represented by that person, simply because they haven't "lived that life" and not had the same experiences as a trans or non binary student has. I propose that the Trans Officer from the LGBT+ Network be added to the student council, for better representation of our community.

    11:57am on 5 Oct 20 Thanks very much Len for your submission. This is something that many SUs have considered (e.g. autonomous trans representation) and a discussion worth having, potentially internally in the LGBT+ Network then for a Better Staffs. Network representation is a huge focus for the Union this year, and this definitely feeds into it. Should we have any updates, we'll be in contact.
