LGBT+ Role Models and Allies

The University of Leeds is very proud to have a diverse community of staff and students. Our diversity is one aspect that makes us a successful, leading, international University.

We know that Role Models are important and they can help to encourage, influence and develop others. We know it is also important that staff and students see people like them at all levels within our University. We are proud to showcase some of our LGBT+ role models and allies here.

Whether you identify as a LGBT+ role model or ally, let us know if you would like to contribute your own story to add to our site by emailing the LGBT+ Staff Network or Equality Policy Unit.

We use LGBT+ as an inclusive, all encompassing term for the full range of sexual orientation and gender identities.
