Can it be changed to the following

Loughborough College is committed to the promotion of equal opportunities. Discrimination and harassment against transgender and non-binary staff, learners or visitors will not be tolerated, and the College will provide a positive and welcoming environment for all. LGBT+ people deserve and need unconditional acceptance without the pressure and, in many cases, the expectation to conform to heteronormativity.
