Meet your 2019 LGBT+ Officer Candidate

Jake Card is a first year Chemistry student running to be your LGBT+ officer for the 2019-2020 academic year. The following are a few key points from his manifesto:

Believing that “community change is always required”, Jake is committed to people being “taught about the past issues and main events that every LGBT+ person should know”.

In order to achieve this, Jake is “working in depth with local drag queens and LGBT+ charities to support local youth to understand and be excepting of themselves and their peers.”

Jake wishes to “enlighten more people to the artform of drag and hopefully put on a show”.

In terms of experience for the role, Jake has completed “volunteering and charity work for LGBT+ charities” which have helped him “build [his] courage up whilst building up others”.

Overall, Jake “would love to spread the message of love and not hate into this dreary world we live in!”
