Theresa May faces equal marriage protesters on Northern Ireland trip

11/27/2018 | Pink News

The Prime Minister visited Belfast, Northern Ireland, on Tuesday as part of a UK-wide charm offensive in order to win support for her Brexit deal. However, her speech at Queen’s University Belfast faced protests from LGBT+ activists challenging her government’s role in preventing marriage equality in Northern Ireland. May’s government has stood in the way of a direct settlement to bring about equal marriage in the absence of Northern Ireland’s power-sharing executive. The PM has said the issue must wait until devolution is restored, but the region has been without a government since January 2017 due to a rift between Sinn Féin and the Democratic Unionist Party.
