Love Equal Marriage

Publish Date: 04/12/2012

 

In March 2012 The Government launched a consultation which set out their proposals to enable same-sex couples to have a civil marriage. The consultation ended in June 2012 and received 228,000 responses, one of the biggest ever to a government consultation. The results of the consultation are due to be announced in early December.

The Lesbian & Gay Foundation have launched a new campaign to encourage people to fight for equality and support same-sex marriage. Whether you are lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender or straight, or if you plan to get married or not it’s incredibly important that you make your voice heard in support of this important issue.

 This is a Campaign For All.  Everyone should have access to the institution of marriage.   This is not about gay rights – it’s about equal rights.  

John Whaite, winner of the 2012 Great British Bake Off is supporting the campaign and comments;

"For me, equality is so very important and it makes me incredibly pleased to see that LGF is campaigning for a change in the law. I feel same sex marriage is a basic and fundamental human right, and to prevent it is nothing but infringement of that.”
