The campaign, which was launched last year, sees students and staff wear badges identifying their correct pronouns. There is a new ‘Trans Ally’ badge available this year.
#MyPronounsAre has been put together by Brighton and Hove City Council with support from the university, local NHS Trust, Sussex Police and local LGBT+ and trans community groups.
Julie Fryatt, the university’s Director of People, said: “The University of Brighton is delighted to be joining partners across the city for the #MyPronounsAre campaign, which raises awareness of gender identity and provides us all an opportunity to let others know how we should be addressed.
“This is building on last year’s success, when the campaign was positively and enthusiastically embraced by staff and students across the university. We are pleased that the campaign continues to grow and include new partner organisations, across a variety of sectors. This demonstrates the inclusive and progressive spirit of Brighton and Hove, which we are proud to be a part of.
“In the summer we launched an Allies programme at the university, which encourages staff to be visible and pro-active supporters of the LGBT+ community. We recognise the role all of us play in protecting the rights of others, and are delighted that this year a ‘Trans Ally’ badge is available as part of the #MyPronounsAre campaign.
“International Transgender Day of Visibility is an important opportunity to recognise and celebrate trans and non-binary people. At the University of Brighton we are committed to doing this all year round. We are proud to stand alongside our city partners to demonstrate our ongoing support for trans and non-binary people.”
