LGBT resources donated by MetSU
We’re extending a big thank you to the Swansea Metropolitan Students’ Union Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Society today as they have kindly donated some resources to the library. The booklets, reports and guides can be found at Townhill Library as it was felt that they could be particularly helpful for our future psychologists, counsellors and teachers who may come across issues around homophobia in their careers. The donations cover a range of areas including inclusive practice in the workplace, the portrayal of gay people in the media, homophobia in schools and setting up institutional support for gay, lesbian and bisexual people. For the full range, simply type the words donated by the MetSU LGBT Society into our Library Catalogue Quick Search.
Many of these resources have been produced by Stonewall, the charity which campaigns for the rights of lesbians, gay men and bisexuals. If any of these issues concern you, or if you’d simply like to find out more about Stonewall’s work, you can take a look at their website: http://www.stonewall.org.uk/. You’ll find material about Stonewall’s research, access to publications, details of key legislation and information about campaigns. For information and advice closer to home, check out the MetSU LGBT page which links through to information on the main NUS site.
