Sinn Féin Calls For Marriage Equality

Sinn Féin's Elisha McCallion has called for marriage equality to be extended to Northern Ireland.

Currently, the region is the only in the UK where same-sex marriage is not legal.

McCallion, who is the party's Foyle Westminster candidate, made the comments after attending a marriage equality demonstration wedding at Stormont.

She said: "It is two years after the historic marriage equality referendum in the south but LGBT citizens in the North are still being denied the opportunity to marry the person they love.

"Today's demonstration shows once again that there is a growing demand across society to see marriage equality extended across the island.

"There can be no place in our society for homophobia, misogyny or discrimination of any form. Sinn Féin will continue to fight for marriage equality and for equal rights for all citizens across the North."
