Fearon encourages people to support Belfast Pride
Sinn Féin MLA Megan Fearon has encouraged people to attend events organised as part of the annual Belfast Pride festival.
The Sinn Féin equality spokesperson said:
“Sinn Féin is proud to support Belfast Pride Festival which continues to go from strength to strength and is a now a real staple of the calendar.
“Pride provides a platform for discussion about equality and raising awareness about issues faced by the LGB & T communities.
“Huge steps forward towards full equality have been made in recent years but there is still more to be done.
“Sinn Féin is a party committed to the equality, we believe that all citizens regardless of race, religion or sexuality should be treated as equals in the eyes of the law and we are determined to see marriage equality across the island.
“It’s important that we show solidarity with the LGB and T communities and send a clear message that inequality and discrimination of any kind is simply not tolerable.
“I would encourage everyone to attend the Pride events which will be held over the course of next week culminating with Belfast Pride on Saturday 4th August.”
