Molly Austin-Knight

LGBT+ Officer


Hi, my names Molly and I'm passionate about equality and representation. I have been an active member of the LGBT+ community since I began university almost 3 years ago and a committee member for the LGBT+ Society for 6 months.

I aim to:

  1. Try and provide more specialised mental health support for the LGBT+ community. I want to work with other universities who have this support in place and see what can be provided at our univeristy. I also want to talk to LGBT+ charities and see what support that can provide. I want to help people feel they have a safe space to discuss their feelings.
  2. Be your voice and raise awareness for current student issues. I want you to feel that you have a strong, reliable voice that will represent you on the union council.
  3. Continue the fantastic work that the previous LGBT+ officers started and continue working with other part time officers to create a functional and representative student environment. I also want to continue working closely with the LGBT+ society and other societies.

I think these aims will have a positive impact on the LGBT+ community at the university and I cant wait to work with the community to make the University a safe space for all. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me!
