Malachai & Michael

Malachai & Michael live in North Belfast and ‘married’ each other on the steps of the Merchant Hotel as part of Belfast Culture Night in September 2015.

Malachai says “Michael and I would dearly love to get married for real, just as our siblings are able to do. We are ready and waiting to be a married couple. We shouldn’t really have to ask the permission of politicians at Stormont to do so. We know that most people in Northern Ireland want the law changed. Now we just need our politicians to stop getting in the way of us living our lives.”
