Tea Time with Taj: KCLSU’s New LGBTQ+ Safe Space

Tea Time with Taj: KCLSU’s New LGBTQ+ Safe Space
Tea Time with Taj: KCLSU’s New LGBTQ+ Safe Space

On Saturday 29 June 2024, Taj Donville-Outerbridge kicked off Pride in London, alongside the Mayor of London and other LGBTQ+ activists.

Taj, a final year Global Health and Social Medicine student at King’s College London, has dedicated himself to fostering community among LGBTQ+ students, with a specific focus on supporting black students. This dedication is also reflected in their work in Bermuda, where they co-founded Bermuda Pride and the country’s first LGBTQ+ youth group.

Taj’s activism has been recognised with awards from King’s, KCLSU and national honours, including Changemaker of the Year 2024 at the National Student Pride Awards.

Taj was recently honoured with the Haris Ahmed Volunteer of the Year award from KCLSU for their exceptional efforts in launching Tea Time with Taj. This initiative, in partnership with KCLSU Wellbeing, provides a safe and supportive space for LGBTQ+ students to unwind with activities or simply enjoy tea and snacks.

Below is a video of Taj talking about their journey as a Black, queer, non-binary student, how these identities have shaped their leadership journey at King’s, and why they are so passionate about inspiring future generations of students.
