Trinity-INC Seminar - Queer Inclusion: higher education, healthcare and beyond, with Dr Duncan Shrewsbury
The Trinity Inclusive Curriculum Project and Faculty of Health Sciences EDI Group are delighted to collaborate on a Pride Month seminar on Queer Inclusion as part of the Trinity-INC Lunchtime Online Seminar Series. The seminar will be 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).

Drawing on his rich research, practice and policy experience in queer inclusion, Dr Duncan Shrewsbury will discuss inequity and issues faced by the LGBTQIA+ community in higher education and healthcare as well as explore the importance of role models and allies, ‘Good’ allyship and active bystandership. Duncan will also include 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, will respond to Duncan's talk, providing insights into the Trinity context and his experience as a student.

Finally, we are delighted to welcome Dr Lorna Roe to join us to provide a brief overview of an ongoing Trinity Equality Fund project on diversifying the Trinity medical curriculum to include the experiences of ageing LGBTQ+ people.

Pride Month is an annual colourful celebration of love, friendship and community. While decades of arduous activism has led to notable social change, such as the passing of the marriage equality referendum in Ireland, 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.

Everyone who is interested in – or curious about – Queer Inclusion in higher education, healthcare and beyond is most welcome to join!
