Trans Equality - Frequently Asked Questions
Guidance and Frequently Asked Questions for Students and Staff
As part of its wider Equality and Diversity Policy, Queen’s University (“the University”) is committed to providing an inclusive and welcoming community where staff and students are enabled to meet their full potential and are treated as individuals.
This includes providing advice, support and understanding to those individuals who have transitioned, are transitioning, or are planning to transition, are non-binary, intersex or gender non-conforming.
The University recognises that this can be a very difficult and complex time for an individual and would wish to act in a sensitive and supportive way by having a helpful policy and practices in place to ease any transitional period.
The following FAQs are designed to provide staff and students at Queen’s with some basic guidance and further information relating to trans issues. They have been developed following engagement and consultation with relevant parties and complement the information which is contained within the University’s Trans Equality Policy.
A full list of useful Trans terminology is available on the Transgender NI website.
