I'm a final year BSc Psychology student, in addition to being employed by
the university in a Research Assistant role. I am also an active member
of the Performing Arts society. Having grown up in a conservative,
religious environment, where sexual expression in any form was strictly
taboo, I've found it important to embrace every aspect of my sexuality.
While I've never sat down and consciously tried to label myself, I
suppose "pansexual" fits best, as I haven't been constrained in my
attraction towards others by biological sex, gender, or gender identity.
I'm proud to be LGBTQ+, and have felt extremely respected and accepted
for it at Greenwich so far (some gender neutral bathrooms would be great,
though!). That being said, I've spent the majority of my life in
countries where it's pertinent - even necessary - to exercise more
caution, so the UK feels relatively safe in comparison. Furthermore, my
sexuality is largely unnoticeable in my day-to-day life; I've been with
my boyfriend for the past two years, and I've never dated a girl
seriously enough to introduce her to my parents. I think that would be my
biggest barrier to overcome!
