Sexual Orientation and Gender Identity

This dimension refers to a person’s sexual orientation, i.e. to whom a person feels sexually and/or emotionally attracted (e.g. heterosexual, homosexual, bisexual etc.). It also refers to an individual’s gender identity which expresses the gender-specific way of life and associated sociocultural attribution through which a person categorizes him*herself. Sexual identity can also deviate from a person’s biological gender (e.g. trans*) or vary from the binary (two-gender) system of “man” and “woman” (e.g. inter*).

HHU views itself as an organization that does not tolerate any discrimination or preferential treatment as a result of this dimension. HHU offers a wide spectrum of events and advisory services, especially within the Students’ Association.
