Tea Time with Taj: KCLSU's new LGBTQ+ safe space

Taj (right hand side) is at London's Pride parade holding a sign that reads 'WE BUILT THIS CITY'. The crowd behind them is lively and diverse, celebrating LGBTQ+ pride and unity.

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

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

Taj’s activism has earned recognition through awards from King’s, KCLSU, and national accolades, including the 2024 Changemaker of the Year at the National Student Pride awards.

Recently, Taj was 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 collaboration with KCLSU Wellbeing, provides a safe and supportive space for LGBTQ+ students to unwind with activities or simply enjoy tea and snacks.

Here's a video below from Taj as they discuss their journey as a Black, queer, non-binary student, how these identities shaped their leadership journey at King’s and why they're passionate about inspiring future generations of students.
