姬佬去留学① | Exploring the LGBTQ+Society at British Universities ×UCL

We invite one guest – Yin, studying at UCL, to share her experience on UCL LGBTQ+ Network. 作为一名小姬佬,在国内求学期间,你是否在江湖上听闻学校存在一个彩虹社的传说?之后偷偷四处打探,幻想在某个爱的转角处与其他姬佬抱拳相认…😎 出现这种现象的原因是国内LGBTQ+社团基本处于地下党状态,他们无法在学生会合法注册,这也意味着得不到学校的官方认可。更有甚者,如果你是彩虹社的成员,很有可能会被校领导请去“喝喝茶”…… 而在英国,这类社团的处境大大大大不一样,几乎所有高校都有合法注册的LGBTQ+社团。凭借着名正言顺的身份,他们能充分利用场地,宣传平台和资金等资源,各种形式的活动办得如火如荼。每到骄傲月,你还可以看到校园最高的那栋建筑顶端挂着一面彩虹旗,足足挂上一个月。 不管怎样,作为一名来英国留学的小姬佬,你或许和我一样对LGBT+社团充满好奇。因此,我特意邀请到有LGBTQ+社团经验的好友,带你一起探秘英国高校的彩虹社叭😛 嘉宾 – Yin, 伦敦大学学院(UCL)攻读自然科学的一年级本科生;UCL LGBT+ Network的无浪漫倾向/无性恋代表 (aromantic/asexual rep);尽管生理性别为女性,她对自己的性别认同保持开放态度,也许是女性也许是非二元性别。 Speaker – Yin, “A first-year undergraduate student studying MSci Natural Sciences (Physics + Molecular and Cell Biology). I am the aro/ace rep of the UCL LGBTQ+…
