Sinn Féin - On Your Side

Marriage equality needs to be extended to North - McCallion

22 May, 2017 - by Elisha McCallion

Elisha McCallion has said Sinn Féin is committed to seeing equal marriage extended across the island.

Speaking after attending a marriage equality demonstration wedding at Stormont the Foyle Westminster candidate said:

"It is two years after the historic marriage equality referendum in the south but LGBT citizens in the North are still being denied the opportunity to marry the person they love.

"Today's demonstration shows once again that there is a growing demand across society to see marriage equality extended across the island. 

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

“Sinn Fein will continue to fight for marriage equality and for equal rights for all citizens across the North."
