Marriage equality advocates are planning a day-long rally at the House of Lords monday as the final vote is taken on the marriage equality bill there. Pink News reports:
Campaigners will gather by the statue of George V in Old Palace Yard, Westminster, diagonally opposite the main entrance to the House of Commons at 11am on Monday. #LordsVigil will be used on Twitter to share information and photographs. The London Gay Men’s Chorus and the London Gay Big Band will provide music and entertainment from 11am, and attendees are encouraged to bring placards, rainbow flags and pink jack flags. The House of Lords will start at around 15:30, and the vote is expected in the evening. If passed in its Third Reading, the bill will be different to that which passed in the House of Commons, so will return there to for approval on Thursday.
So if things go well, the bill could be ready for royal assent by the end of the week. Wow.
