The Rainbow Project, Northern Ireland’s largest support organisation for lesbian, gay, bisexual and/or transgender people and their families, has welcomed the support for equal marriage by Alliance MLA Trevor Lunn.

Speaking following the announcement, John O’Doherty, Director of The Rainbow Project said:

‘Trevor has long been a supporter of the LGBT community in Northern Ireland and has been a strong voice for the rights of LGBT young people in education. We are enormously happy that Trevor has now come out in favour of equal marriage. Trevor’s journey is something which many people in Northern Ireland can relate to. Many people have gone on a journey of acceptance of their LGBT friends, family members and neighbours and it’s important that we respect people who are on this journey with us.’
