Transgender and gender identity

31 March is Trans Day of Visibility celebrating the achievements of trans people across the globe, while recognising the work still required to make transphobia a thing of the past. Here are just a few trans role models who work at Oxford or who have recently been invited to speak here:




The University's Equality Policy provides for an inclusive environment,  which 'promotes equality, values diversity and maintains a working, learning and social environment in which the rights and dignity of all its staff and students are respected.'

The University aims to anticipate and respond positively to the needs of trans and gender variant students, staff and alumni, enabling all members of the University to feel welcome, safe, valued and supported in achieving their potential and contributing as a member of the University.

See University of Oxford Transgender Policy (189kb) and University of Oxford Transgender Guidance (588kb) for more information.

NOTE October 2016 The Transgender guidance is currently being revised and a draft will be available later this term.  Please note that the external organisation Gendered Intelligence no longer provides free mentoring for transgender students.
