College and university is a time of self-discovery and personal growth. It is also the time when many of us came out of the ‘closet’, and discovered who we really are. Unfortunately, LGBT students are frequently at risk of systematic and individual discrimination and harassment. For many students, joining the LGBT society at school is their first experience of being in a welcoming and accepting environment. Not to mention their first chance at becoming an activist, working towards changes that affect their lives and those of their peers.

MEGAN KEY - Public Sector worker Megan has been an exemplary role model within the National Probation Service, moving from Probation Officer to Equalities Manager in the Midlands division, where she is now responsible for strategic design and delivery of equality and inclusion for service users and employees. Since choosing to live visibly as a transgender woman three years ago, Megan has been active in highlighting trans issues and promoting acceptance. The impact she’s had on the lives of trans people and members of other minority groups as a result is phenomenal. Dedicated to raising awareness at all levels and throughout the country, Megan volunteers as a trustee for Wolverhampton based charity Gender Matters, she’s works with schools in Birmingham to promote trans awareness, and represents her trades union at the TUC LGBT conference.
An incredible role model who thoroughly deserves recognition.
