Fearon welcomes PSNI Pride initiative.
Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has welcomed an initiative that will see uniformed PSNI officers march in Belfast's Pride Parade for the first time.
The party’s spokesperson on equality and social justice said:
“Sinn Féin is a party committed to the equality agenda. We believe that all citizens regardless of race, religion or sexuality should be treated as equals in the eyes of the law.
“The rights of the LGB and T communities and human rights are not separate; they are one and the same.
“Homophobia remains the biggest barrier to full participation of the Gay/Lesbian community. While barriers are breaking down, step by step, there is more to be done.
“This initiative by the PSNI builds upon the PSNI commitment to ensuring equality in the delivery of its service to all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people and is a welcome initiative.”
