In the second of our bonus podcasts for LGBT History Month, we talk to NUS-USI President Olivia Potter-Hughes about the campaign for marriage equality in Northern Ireland, what comes next and how the rest of the UK can get involved. Plus, while we had the chance, we chatted about NI's other two hottest potatoes - Brexit and abortion rights. If you haven't caught the first in this series, you're missing out. Comedians Kate McCabe and Debra-Jane Appelby of the Strong Female Leads podcast talk LGBT representation in popular culture. And next week, we talk to comedian Rosie Jones about dating and disability. Yes, we are spoiling you.
