The Trinity Inclusive Curriculum Project and Faculty of Health Sciences EDI Group collaboratively held a Pride Month seminar on Queer Inclusion as part of the Trinity-INC Lunchtime Online Seminar Series. The seminar was delivered by Dr Duncan Shrewsbury (he/him), Senior Lecturer in General Practice at Brighton and Sussex Medical School, with contributions from EDI Group member and Trinity-INC Student Partner Aaron Koay (he/him) and Trinity School of Medicine Academic, Dr Lorna Roe (she/her).

Pride Month is an annual colourful celebration of love, friendship and community. Nevertheless, it would be wrong to detach Pride from its origin as a commemoration of the 1969 Stonewall riots and the years of struggles and continued pursuit of social justice by the LGBTQIA+ communities worldwide. Although notable social change, such as the passing of the marriage equality referendum in Ireland, has ensued from decades of arduous activism, people from the LGBTQIA+ communities continue to face injustices and inequalities across all aspects of their lives in a society that is still structurally heteronormative and cis-gendered.

Drawing on his rich research, practice and policy experience in queer inclusion, Dr Duncan Shrewsbury discussed inequity and issues faced by the LGBTQIA+ community in higher education and healthcare and explored the importance of role models and allies, ‘Good’ allyship and active bystandership. Duncan also included some tangible examples and tips about how to embed queer inclusive practices in organisations and also how to emulate these practices on an individual level.

Aaron Koay, Trinity pharmacy student and Trinity-INC Student Partner, responded to Duncan’s talk, providing insights into the Trinity context and his experience as a student. (Aaron’s presentation slides are available on our website

Finally, we were delighted to welcome Dr Lorna Roe who provided a brief overview of an ongoing Trinity Equality Fund project on diversifying the Trinity medical curriculum to include the experiences of ageing LGBTQ+ people. (Lorna’s presentation slides are available on our website
