Extend equal marriage to all areas of the UK now

Extend equal marriage to all areas of the UK now

Put pressure on the Northern Ireland Assembly to pass the legislation that will bring equal treatment to LGBT couples throughout all of the UK.

Why is this important?

Currently same sex marriage is not allowed in Northern Ireland. This is because, despite laws being passed in the UK that grant same-sex marriages, the Northern Irish assembly (because of the now infamous DUP) has blocked any such proposal there.

This means that LGBT UK citizens are being treated as 2nd class citizens in a part of the UK, we need to address this quickly and with certainty, as this is intolerable.

It will also have further reaching consequences as a change in law in Northern Ireland will strengthen our position when campaigning with other countries when they deny their citizens equal LGBT rights.

  • Religious bigots shouldn't ruin people's lives.
