The Modern Saints LGBT+

The Saints LGBT+ are fortunate enough to be one of a small number of subcommittees within the Students Association. This means that every matriculated students of the University is automatically a member of the Saints LGBT+, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation, and we do not charge membership fees. We are represented on the Student Services Council (SSC) by our elected Association LGBT Officer, who holds the position of President of the subcommittee.

Our events run regularly throughout the year and are, like the subcommittee as a whole, fully open to anybody who wishes to attend. Each academic year we elect a subcommittee. This collection of students is also dedicated to being available to talk to others and foster a welcoming atmosphere. 

But the most important part of the subcommittee is our student membership. Without the support and engagement of the community we would not be able to host the events that we do or provide the resources that we can. We look forward to seeing our society grow and move forward!

Committee 2020-2021

Towards the end of each academic year our entire committee is dissolved and created anew. With the main Students Association elections a new LGBT Officer is chosen by the entire student population, and they become the new Saints LGBT+ President. For the rest of the committee, most are elected at our Annual General Meeting (AGM) by ballot from attendees, whilst a few are interviewed and appointed directly by the President and a selection panel. 

Below you can find the current committee, with a brief introduction to their role. Should you wish to contact one of our committee members directly, simply send an email to SaintsLGBT@st-andrews.ac.uk addressed to either their name or their position and they will get back to you as soon as they can.
