The LGBT+ Campaign exists to provide a safe space within Edinburgh University Students' Association where self-identifying LGBT+ students can come together, discuss the issues affecting them, and campaign to improve their student experience. There are many identities which fall under the LGBT+ umbrella including, but not limited to, lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans, queer, intersex, and asexual, and all students who self-define as LGBT+ are welcome to join.
The LGBT+ Campaign is led by the Students' Association's LGBT+ Officer. This year's LGBT+ Officer is George Ross, who was elected by self-defining LGBT+ students in the Students' Association's March elections.

All self-identifying LGBT+ students are welcome to get involved in the LGBT+ Campaign. To find out more you can join the Facebook group, email email@example.com, or come along to one of the Campaign's events.
