Weekly round-up and open thread
Lusana Taylor // 25 May 2015
It’s been a mixed week in terms of news – the good news being that Ireland voted for gay marriage in the referendum, the bad news being that Serbia’s amazing body-positive song didn’t win Eurovision!
Fear not, there’s nothing on Eurovision in this week’s round-up, but you can find an interesting piece on the referendum from New Statesman. If you’d like to comment on one of issues covered or share another article that we haven’t included, feel free to get involved in the comments section below or on Facebook/Twitter.

It is also worth noting that, while we welcome engagement on the weekly round-up, any comments including racist, sexist, homophobic, transphobic or disablist language will be deleted.
