O’Neill urges support for Pride rally
Sinn Féin Deputy Leader Michelle O’Neill has urged as many people as possible to attend this weekend’s Pride parade in Belfast.
She commented: “Sinn Féin is proud to support the Belfast Pride Festival and we will be assembling outside McHugh's Bar at Custom House Square at 12.15 on Saturday to march with our LGB&T brothers and sisters to continue the demand for full equality.
“Pride is a wonderful platform for raising awareness and campaigning on issues faced by the LGB & T communities such as the need to extend marriage equality across the whole of Ireland.
“I would encourage as many people as possible to attend the Pride parade to show solidarity and send a clear message that inequality and discrimination of any kind is simply not tolerable.” ENDS/CRÍOCH
