The London Irish LGBT Network welcomes the vote by Parliament in Westminster to extend marriage equality to Northern Ireland by October 21st, if power sharing has not been restored by then.
Our conference on LGBT Equality & Ireland last November, addressed the need for equal marriage in Northern Ireland. It was attended by Conor McGinn, Labour MP for St Helens, who tabled the motion and Clare Moore from Love Equality. We would like to extend our congratulations to those who have worked so hard for marriage equality in Northern Ireland and now look forward to having equal marriage extended to all parts of the British Isles.
Equal marriage is another step forward in solidarity and support for the LGBTQ+ community and diversity.
