We were honoured to be thanked by Prime Minister David Cameron, and Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg and Ed Miliband among others, who acknowledged the work of PinkNews and Out4Marriage leading up to, and during, the equal marriage debate in England and Wales.

It is particularly important for us that we work with politicians across the political spectrum and so are delighted that Mr Cameron, Mr Clegg and Mr Miliband are all regular contributors to PinkNews. We are also were pleased this year to have welcomed columns from leading members of the Greens and the Scottish National Party too.

Arguing for the motion, the winning team of the debate, was PinkNews and Out4Marriage founder, Benjamin Cohen, gay rights activist, Richard Fairbass of the band Right Said Fred, and Phyll Opoku-Gyimah of Black Pride UK.

Debating against the motion was Peter D Williams of Catholic Voices, anti-abortion activist Anthony McCarthy and anti-equality activist, Lynette Burrows.

The motion was carried with 345 votes to 21.
