Finucane backs rights for LGB and T communities

16 May, 2017


Sinn Féin Westminster candidate for North Belfast John Finucane said he will continue to campaign for equality and equal rights for all.

Speaking at the launch of LGBT Awareness Week at the Belfast Harbour Commission last night, John Finucane said:

“I am delighted to be here at the Belfast Harbour Commission for the launch of the LGBT Awareness week.

“Equality and equal rights is something that I have tried to campaign and fight for in both my personal and professional life.

“I will continue to do that in my political life going forward. 

“Equality is something that is at the core of Sinn Féin and it is something I believe should be at the heart of the political process.

“Sinn Féin will continue to fight for marriage equality and for equal rights for all citizens across the north.

“There can be no place in our society for homophobia, misogyny or any form of discrimination.

“The message that has been given loud and clear is that we all have to work towards a society that is diverse, that is inclusive and most importantly is tolerant.”
