  3. Urging the President of Magdalen College to commit to ensuring an LGBTQ+ inclusive and welcoming atmosphere at Magdalen College.

2. To mandate the VP WEO, working with the SU LGBTQ+ Campaign and Campaign for Racial Awareness and Equality, to create a bank of resources providing information on the global oppression of LGBTQ+ people worldwide. These should mention the disproportionate impact global homophobia has on Queer People of Colour and contain specific resources people can donate to supporting LGBTQ+ rights in the Cayman Islands.
