Aaron Gabriel

Inclusion Consultant

Pronouns: They/Them

Aaron Gabriel is a trans writer, researcher, and organiser. They recently obtained a PhD in French philosophy, where they reworked the ideas of French philosophers to better account for the lived experiences of marginalised groups, including chronically ill and disabled people, as well as people of colour, and queer people.

Aaron has extensive experience in working with institutions to improve the living and working conditions of marginalised people. During their Master’s in Lyon, France, they set up an LGBTQ+ association to advocate for the rights of queer students and staff within their university, and to raise awareness of LGBTQ+ identities, and of the discrimination queer people face.

Most recently, as Co-Chair for Oxford University’s Student Union’s LGBTQ+ Campaign, they helped to draft a report into the experiences of trans students and staff at the university, and to push for changes to improve trans lives. They have also designed and run workshops to educate students and staff about a range of marginalised groups – including disabled, chronically ill, and neurodivergent people – and to give them the tools to better support members of those marginalised groups.
