Fearon congratulates Pride in Newry
Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has congratulated Pride in Newry on winning the bid to host the main 2019 Pride Festival and Parade on these islands.
The party’s equality spokesperson said:
“I would like to congratulate Pride in Newry for winning this bid, it is a huge achievement and will be a boost for the area.
“It is also a reward for all their hard work and determination in the fight for LGBTQ+ rights in the north.
“In recent years we have seen large numbers on the streets of Newry in a display of unity and determination to end the disgraceful denial of rights, including marriage equality, by the DUP and facilitated by the British government in the north.
“Sinn Féin will continue to fight for equality for all our citizens so they can enjoy rights which are afforded to citizens elsewhere on these islands.”
