MAKE LOVE EQUAL – TAKE ACTION IN SUPPORT OF EQUAL MARRIAGE IN NORTHERN IRELAND
Northern Ireland is the only region of the UK which does not allow or recognise same-sex marriage, despite huge support among the public and Northern Ireland Assembly members.
In the absence of functioning devolution, only Parliament can undo the ban on same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland. On 1 March this issue will be raised in Westminster.
On that date, the Civil Partnership Bill will be considered in the Lords, and peers will have an opportunity to support an amendment from Lord Hayward which would extend equal marriage to Northern Ireland.
We need you to tell the Government to stand up for equal rights for LGBT+ people throughout the UK.
