As a queer woman I am proud to be the first Professor of Feminist and Queer Legal Studies at Edinburgh University, and to have been part of the efforts to reinvigorate the University’s Network for LGBT+ staff, students and allies. I am happy to offer support, mentoring and collaborative opportunities for those who are part of the LGBTQI+ community across Edinburgh University and beyond.

The Staff Pride Network goes from strength to strength. I'm proud to be part of a University that really demonstrates its commitment to equality and diversity by fully supporting the LGBT+ community of staff and students. Working with Stonewall has highlighted the importance of visible role models and supportive allies across the University, so as a gay man I'm delighted to be part of a network that can have real impact on people's lives.
