Belfast Pride Award nomination an honour - O'Neill
Sinn Féin has been nominated for three awards at this year’s Belfast Pride Awards.
Health Minister Michelle O’Neill MLA has been nominated for the People Choice Award after her decision to lift the lifetime Blood Ban, while fellow Sinn Féin activist Michael Gray-Sloan and Belfast Sinn Féin councillor and deputy Mayor Mary Ellen Campbell are up for the Political Contribution Award.
Sinn Féin also received a nomination for the Best Parade Entry 2015.
Nominee Michelle O’Neill MLA said:
“It is an honour for myself and the Party to receive nominations for the Belfast Pride Awards.
“Over the past number of years Sinn Féin have been very successful with previous winners including Cllr Mary Ellen Campbell, Megan Fearon MLA, Caitríona Ruane MLA and Maírtín Ó Muilleoir MLA.
“Sinn Féin is committed to ensuring the rights of all citizens in Ireland and will continue to campaign for marriage equality across the island.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
