We saw several months ago that two same-sex couples were trying to launch a legal challenge to repeal the marriage equality ban in Northern Ireland. Good news! They come to the right to do so!
Well, this is not going very well in Northern Ireland. Remember, a few months ago Ireland approved marriage equality by referendum, but Northern Ireland remained the only country in the UK not to have legalized same-sex marriage because the two countries don't have the same laws, contrary to what one might think.
Labor Member of Parliament Ivan Lewis will require a public vote on the equal marriage.
While a few weeks ago, two LGBT couples launched a challenge against the marriage equality ban in Northern Ireland, which remains the only country in the UK not to have legalized marriage equality, a poll shows important support of the population.
As I have mentioned several times, Northern Ireland has still not legalized marriage equality because its laws differ from those of Ireland, which has recently approved marriage for same-sex couples by referendum.
However, two couples, Shannon Sickles and Grainne Close, and Chris Henry and Flanagan-Kane, just launched a challenge against the ban in Belfast High Court.
Huge disappointment in Northern Ireland, where the assembly of Stormont rejected for the fourth time a motion that would have legalized marriage equality.
The actress Ellen Page protests the decoration of an anti-LGBT politician by the Queen of England and she is right.
