All delegates who attend NUS LGBT+ conference are free to submit motions for discussion, but they do not necessarily represent the views of NUS.
NUS itself does not have any committee places solely reserved for men, this is because we recognise that the LGBT+ community is far wider than just men. At a national level we have an open place where anyone can put themselves forward for nomination.
The conference encouraged local LGBT+ societies to do the same, although ultimately we have no jurisdiction over them. This has nothing to do with the views of an individual about the validity of issues anyone faces but is simply because we believe it's fairer practice.
