Gender Equality at Freie Universität

Vlad is queer and loves studying at Freie Universität! However, a lot of people are being discriminated against or bullied because of their gender or sexual identity. In his Insta Takeover from May 14 to 18, 2018 @vlad.turanski shows us who you can turn to in case you feel uncomfortable on campus.

North American Studies, Fashionista, Gender Equality Researcher and LGBTQIA Advocate

All right, everybody, so I decided to finish my #takeover the same way I started it - extra and over the top! I hope you enjoyed this week just as much as I did. Thank you for such an amazing feedback. It was great to learn how many of us are here, and how much we are queer. Just remember, there always are people who will support you! No matter what background you’re coming from: be brave, be extra, be gay or straight, be beautiful, be you! Slay your life, just like I slay this red coat by @melisaminca! Have a great weekend everybody!
