Transgender Day of Remembrance and Trans Awareness Training

Transgender Day of Remembrance

Transgender Day of Remembrance is marked each year on 20 November. It is a day on which we celebrate our trans staff and students, but also remember those affected by violence against the trans community in the UK and beyond, particularly over the last year.

Flag-raising ceremony and speeches 

Monday 20 November, 1.00pm - 1.40pm, flagpole between Whiteknights House and the Library.

Please come and join us at the flagpole between Whiteknights House and the Library as we fly a rainbow flag in honour of our trans and LGBT community. The ceremony will be hosted by  Vice-Chancellor Sir David Bell, RUSU and the LGBT Plus staff network, with guest speaker Alyssa Henley, the Trans* Liaison Officer at Support U, the Reading-based resource service for LGBT+ people and issues. All are welcome. 

Trans awareness training with Rosemary Taylor

Wednesday 22 November, 2.00pm - 4.00pm, Palmer 106, Whiteknights (and repeated 21 February).

We will once again be holding a special training session ideal for public-facing members of the University community, including student representatives, academic teaching staff and customer services operatives. The session is led by former student Rosemary Taylor, and all staff and students are welcome to attend. 

Staff can book via the Employee Self Service, and students can book by contacting Sinead O'Flynn.

We look forward to seeing our students and staff joining together in support of the local and international LGBT+ community.
