President: Orla McDermott
I’m Orla, and I’m your president for this semester (bow down peasants ).
What does that mean?
Well I’ll be working hard with the rest of the committee to ensure that everything is running smoothly and we are doing the best we can for our members! If you have any suggestions for meetings, or events or any queeries or complaints you can bring them to me and I will bring them to the committee at our weekly meeting!
I joined this society in first year, just out and coming from a fairly rural area where I didn’t know a single other LGBTQ+ person else, I was so intimidated when I first joined such a loud, proud, open society, because I’d never experienced something like it before, but it didn’t take long to become one of them! Everyone is so friendly and welcoming, and that’s what I love most about this society! I joined committee as First Year Rep, then I was PRO for 2 semesters, and now I’m the president! This amazing society has shaped my college life, it’s given me a sense of belonging and freedom and Queer hangouts are my favourite part of every week! I can’t wait to see all the great things we do this year!
If you have any questions about the society or life, or just need a friend or someone to walk to meetings with (I know it can be intimidating to go on your own at first but trust me you won’t regret it!) please feel free to drop me a message on Facebook, or wherever else you find me, I love making new friends! Though I will probably be a big ball of stress this year!
I hope you love our society as much as I do!
