'City Hall Rainbow flag decision is a celebration of Pride' - Campbell

22 March, 2019 - by Mary Ellen Campbell

Sinn Féin Councillor Mary Ellen Campbell has said flying the Rainbow flag from Belfast City Hall during Pride is a celebration of the LGBTQ+ community.

Cllr Campbell was speaking after the party’s motion for the Rainbow flag to be flown during Pride was passed at today’s Strategic Policy and Resources Committee.

Cllr Campbell said:

“Our LGBTQ+ citizens make a huge positive contribution to the city of Belfast and the passing of this motion is an expression of solidarity from the city council to the LGBTQ+ community.

“Pride is an enormous day for Belfast as it is both a celebration of our LGBTQ+ community and a protest against the denial of rights.

 “The LGBTQ+ community deserves full recognition and implementation of their rights, including the right of marriage equality which is available everywhere else on these islands.”
