Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has congratulated the Rainbow Project and Cara Friend on winning ‘Community Group of the Year’ at the Pink News Awards. 

The party’s Equality spokesperson said: 

“I would like to congratulate the Rainbow Project and Cara Friend on winning this Pink News award for their hard work and determination in the fight for LGBTQ rights in the north.  

“These groups have a strong commitment to equality, diversity and bringing an end to the disgraceful denial of marriage equality by the Tory/DUP alliance. 

“Over the summer we saw the largest, most vibrant, colourful Pride parades which sent a message that the tide is changing and the ‘north is next’ for marriage equality. 

“It’s important that we continue to send solidarity to groups such as the Rainbow Project and Cara Friend for the tremendous help, support, education and advocacy they provide to LGBTQ adults and young people everyday.”
