Demonstrations are taking place this evening by LGBT campaigners in Northern Ireland who are highlighting how it’s the last remaining part of the UK where equal marriage is yet to be legalised. The Equal Marriage Northern Ireland Campaign is holding two demonstrations at Belfast City Hall and the Guidlhall Square in Foyle from 5-6pm…
“In the South of Ireland, a referendum is expected in the early part of 2015, and early opinion polls suggest a significant majority in favour. Twice before, an equal marriage motion has been debated in the Northern Ireland Assembly, losing by a small margin both times. We are demonstrating today, to remind our political leaders and representatives that we do not want to be left behind in the march toward full legislative equality for LGB&/T people and their families.” Northern Ireland is the only remaining UK nation where equal marriage has not been legalised.
Northern Ireland’s government is becoming more and more isolated as all the other governments around it move to pass marriage equality. How long can they hold out?
