Hi, I’m Parker , and I’m your Association LGBT+ Officer (Saints LGBT+ President)

Hi, I’m Parker , and I’m your Association LGBT+ Officer (Saints LGBT+ President)

My name is Parker Hansen, and I’m a soon-to-be third year Sustainable Development student from Minnesota, USA and I will be your LGBT+ Officer for the 2019-2020 school year! As the Association LGBT+ Officer I am honored to head up the Saints LGBT+ committee to ensure that all LGBT+ students feel welcomed and have a pleasant, comfortable and positive experience- whether through Wellbeing focused meet-ups, initiatives like trying to make St Andrews a better place for trans and non-binary students, or more social events like Pride, dRAG Walk and so much more! 

Through this role I also sit on SRC/SSC, Equal Opportunities Committee and the Wellbeing Committee; and am always more than happy to hear your comments, concerns and ideas of what you want to be done in order to make University a great experience. Coming to University can be stressful, especially as an LGBT+ individual, and I will work hard in ensuring that things can go more smoothly alongside the amazing Saints LGBT+ committee. 

I’m a pretty approachable person and can usually be found lurking in the Student Union, so feel free to come chat with me about anything you’d like- if you want to chat about the weather, birds, (or urban planning and SD because I’m a nerd), or any problems or ideas you have related to LGBT+ issues and I can try to help figure out if I can help in any way. If you don’t feel comfortable coming up in person, feel free to shoot me an email via saintslgbt@st-andrews.ac.uk or contact Saints LGBT+ Facebook page!

I’m super excited for this coming year and to meet all your smiling faces!
