Gender expression fund

What is the Gender Expression Fund?

The GPC provides a Gender Expression Fund, currently standing at £150 per academic year, to reimburse students who purchase gender-affirming items to make them more comfortable with their gender presentation. This includes, but is not limited to binders, packers, concealing underwear, wigs and breast-forms. Students can apply directly for up to £40 reimbursement, with more money available through a further application process.

Why does this fund exist?

This fund exists to make gender-affirming items accessible to students who may not otherwise have the means to purchase them, especially since many such items are manufactured overseas and have high delivery costs. Pembroke is an inclusive and supportive environment, and this fund is in place to ensure that everyone who studies at Pembroke is free to explore their gender identity and expression.

How does it work?

Applications can be submitted though this form.

The process is completely confidential, only the LGBTQ+ officer will have access to the details of the person applying for the fund. The proof of purchase will be anonymously passed to the treasurer, who will send the money to the LGBTQ+ officer. The LGBTQ+ officer will then refund the student and provide the treasurer with proof of this repayment.

Alternatively, if you feel more comfortable with any other member in the welfare team, they can act as an intermediate between you and the LGBTQ+ officer.

If you wish to apply for additional funding outside of the initial £40, you must contact the LGBTQ+ officer directly, who will then raise it anonymously with the GPC to confirm or deny your application.
