Mx. Gellar Day


I came to the University of Leeds from the East-Anglia area to complete my BA in sociology. After this, I moved on to doing a Gender Studies MA also at the University of Leeds. I am currently working on my PhD within the school of Sociology and Social Policy. 

I use they/ them pronouns and identify as a genderqueer person. I’m involved in various projects throughout the city that involves organising Trans Pride Leeds and acting as a safer spaces lead for various collectives. My academic work very much informs this activism and vice versa.
