Trans Officer Update, by the National Office
We are delighted to announce that Labour Students will have Trans Officer in this academic year, provided it passes at National Conference 2019. Liberation Conference falling before National Conference would ordinarily mean no Trans Officer until at least 2020.
Instead, National Committee, including our LGBT+ Officer, has accepted proposals for the Trans Caucus to elect an informal Representative at Liberation Conference 2019. If National Conference 2019 passes a motion in support of a Trans Officer for the second successive year, the position will enter the constitution and the Trans Representative will become Labour Students’ first ever Trans Officer.
We are pleased that National Committee has supported our commitment to Trans autonomy in 2018-19, and look forward to continue supporting all Liberation campaigns over the course of the year.
