GEORGIOS STRATOS

Let's take things a step further!

My name is Georgios Stratos (he/him pronouns). I am an international Law student and am running for LGBT officer this year. Since I started my academic career as a student at UWE I have felt welcome, safe and, most importantly, I've been always encouraged to put my voice out there. This has been my main motive to run for this position and to become an active member of the Student's Union, because I'd like to make sure that every other student benefits and gets the same treatment as I did, be valued for their individuality, be treated fairly and with dignity and respect, in order to work to their full potential and to make the difference. If elected, my first step will be to survey to include your ideas in the way I can shape the LGBT officer position and then starting from there I will give my best to make your ideas reality, as long as they are realistic ones of course! In the meantime, I will keep on organising all our annual events, as usual, and take advantage of every opportunity to bring us all together. Last but not least, I will work closely with the LGBT+ Society consulting with all LGBT+ students on issues affecting them, with focus given to those currently underrepresented.
