Sinn Féin MLA Sean Lynch has said all public and government buildings should be open and welcoming to the LGBT+ community. 

Speaking in Stormont's Long Gallery at the launch of Sinn Féin's programme of events as part of the Belfast Pride Festival, the Sinn Féin equality spokesperson said; 

"I was proud to launch Sinn Féin's programme of events for the Belfast Pride Festival in the Long Gallery in Stormont today. 

"It was the first time the event was held in the Long Gallery and signals another step forward for the LGBT+ community. 

"Public buildings such as Stormont must be open and welcoming to all citizens, including the LGBT+ community. 

"I would encourage as many people as possible to attend the many excellent events during the Belfast Pride Festival. 

"Huge steps forward towards full equality have been made in recent years but there is still more to be done. 

"Sinn Féin remains committed to working for full equality, including marriage equality, for the LGBT+ community."
