What is the role of a Safe Zones@Wits ally?
If you are LGBTIAQ+ identified or know someone who is, you may be in need of some support. Safe Zones allies are here to hear about where you're at, provide a non-judgemental space for you to share your feelings, and if necessary point you in the direction of people who may be able to provide expert support with relationships, reporting discrimination, coming out, health, transitioning, getting support on campus and other areas of LGBTIAQ+ life. Contact an ally via their email address and set up an appointment to discuss areas where you need support. Safe Zones allies are not therapists, but are trained to understand LGBTIAQ+ issues and are members of the University community who are here to listen and support where you're at. For more information on the Safe Zones@Wits ally programme, contact Tish Lumos.
