The first debate for Hilary term is: "This House regrets the prominence of allies in the LGBTQ+ movement" - on Thursday 19 January, 8.30 p.m. in the Debating Chamber.  Great line-up of speakers!

For your background reading before the debate here are some e-resources you might find interesting.

There's also a display of relevant books in the Old Library.  To borrow any of these just take them to the Desk in Library Reception together with your Bod card and (if you haven't borrowed from the Library before) your Union card.  It's a two week loan period so there is plenty of time for reading them.
