Ginny Lemon from Drag Race UK claims they were ‘hounded out of job’ at uni for being gay
Ginny asked to be removed from Worcester University’s LGBT history month post
Ginny Lemon has tweeted asking for Worcester University to take down their photo from an article in honour of LGBT history month following their experiences whilst they were at uni.
Ginny described how they were “hounded out of a job for being gay” and said: “DO NOT want my image being used to promote your lies”. Ginny claims that whilst they were at the University of Worcester they received abuse and bullying which later caused them to need therapy.
The photo, which The University of Worcester has now deleted, was of Ginny at the 2018 Worcestershire Pride Festival.
Ginny’s initial tweet read: “Please remove my photo. As I was hounded out of a job for being gay whilst working at the uni I certainly DO NOT want you using my image to promote your lies. Happy to give more details of the abuse I suffered and the unsuccessful ‘investigations'”.
In a following tweet, they wrote: “Hiya just a reminder to a The University of Worcester do not tag me in ANY POST. Please do not use my ‘success’ to promo your lies about inclusivity. If anyone sees this again plz let me know. Xoxo”
Ginny posted a third tweet stating they were not the only one to experience “hurt and abuse” during their time at Worcester University and that the uni’s post erased that.
The tweet read: “To any other organisational bullies out there. Don’t try and erase the hurt and abuse you’ve caused me and other ppl. I AINT TAKING ANY SHIT MAMWA”
A University of Worcester spokesperson said: “The photograph about which a request was made to be taken down is a publicly available image taken from the 2018 Worcestershire Pride Festival, which was supported by the University of Worcester.
“The photograph, along with an image from our Transgender Education and Support Programme, was posted by a University of Worcester senior member of staff in support of LGBT+ Month and our extensive work to promote inclusion.
