Ludford: "Gay marriage slurs will not keep us from equality"
In a comment piece on Pink News, attacking the slurs of opponents to equal marriage, LGBT+ Lib Dems vice-president Sarah Ludford MEP reaffirms the party's commitment to equal marriage and LGBT equality, saying:
"Liberal Democrats have a strong record of advancing and campaigning for equal rights, and we are whole-hearted supporters of equal marriage. With Liberal Democrats as part of the Coalition, and Lynne Featherstone in the Home Office as minister for equality, this government is committed to advancing equality for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people. We say of equal marriage: 'it is no longer a question of whether - it is when'."
She adds, "Equality has a habit of refreshing the parts that dead tradition cannot reach."
