Sheerin urges support for Belfast Pride march
Sinn Féin MLA Emma Sheerin has urged people to support Saturday’s Belfast Pride parade.
The party’s Equality Spokesperson said:
“Sinn Féin is proud to support the Belfast Pride Festival and will join Saturday’s march in solidarity with our LGBTQI+ brothers and sisters in their fight for full equality.
“This years marks the 50th anniversary of the Stonewall riots – a pivotal moment in the struggle for equality and rights.
“Society is changing north and south; no more should couples who are in love be denied the right to get married.
“Pride is celebration of our LGBTQI+ community, but also a fantastic opportunity to send a loud and colourful message that Belfast stands against inequality and discrimination.
“Join us on Saturday, the parade will be assembling at 1pm at Custom House Square.”
