11:20pm on 20 Mar 19 We desperately need gender neutral toilets in the library. Lecturers also need to be better educated on trans students and the importance of using correct pronouns etc. There needs to be an easy way to communicate the correct pronouns to lecturers (maybe through student services communicating with staff with permission from the student) so that the student does not have to constantly correcct/come out to every lecturer they have. Ideally we should find some way to normalise the communication of preferred pronouns but I don’t know how you’d do this.
