Sinn Féin will continue to campaign for marriage equality - Ruane
Sinn Féin MLA Caitríona Ruane has said Sinn Féin will continue to campaign for marriage equality to be extended to the North.
Ms Ruane said;
"Equality threatens no one and it is hugely disappointing there are still elements in society who refuse to see that.
"They are clearly out of touch with the majority of people in the community, including many from the communities they claim to represent.
"Not only is this an insult to the LGBT community, it is also an attempt to reject the views of growing numbers of people who support marriage equality.
"This will not deter us from continuing to campaign for marriage equality to be extended throughout the island.
"Despite a petition of concern from the DUP, I would appeal to MLAs from all parties who claim to support marriage equality to back this motion in order to send a clear message of support to members of the LGB community."
