● Tutor / Topic ●

  • The history of LGBTQIA+ rights in San Francisco, USA
    MJ711 (she/her)
  • The asexual community in Italy
    Fran S (they/them)
  • Same-sex Marriage in Ireland: The Road to Equality
    Sinead R (she/her)
Pronouns in English: Why do we display pronouns (he/she/they) next to the tutor’s name?

In the English language pronouns refer to short words that are used to substitute (replace) a noun or noun phrase and who are referring to someone named or understood in the context. Pronouns in English are: I, You, It, She, He, They, We

There is no specific look for every man, woman or non-binary person. While people might dress in a certain way that is common for people of their gender, not everyone does.

By stating our pronouns regardless of if we are transgender, cisgender, nonbinary and/or intersex, we can address people the way they want to be addressed and normalize not making presumptions about how other people identify or what pronouns they use.
