Equal Marriage supporters delighted at result of MPs' vote

Fri, 08 Feb 2013

On Tuesday 5th February campaigners gathered outside the House of Commons, celebrating when it was announced that the Marriage (Same-Sex Couples) Bill had passed its first parliamentary hurdle.
 
S Chelvan, a No5 barrister and gay rights campaigner described the vote as a landmark moment in the battle for equal rights and said "Separate but equal is not good enough. Gay people are identified as being different and not worthy of this institution — and it is that distancing that fuels discrimination of lesbian and gay people even in 2013."
