Archibald praises Pride in STEM initiative
Speaking on the first international day of LGBTQ+ people in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Maths (LGBTSTEMDay) Sinn Féin MLA Caoimhe Archibald said:
“Sinn Féin is a party committed to the equality agenda. We believe that all citizens regardless of race, religion or sexuality should be treated as equals.
“Homophobia remains the biggest barrier to full participation for the Gay/Lesbian community. While barriers are breaking down, there is more to be done.
“The #LGBTSTEMDay of recognition could go a long way in helping raise awareness and increase support to increase diversity and inclusion in STEM and ensuring equality in the delivery of its service to all lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people.”
