Nick Clegg: Let’s use pride to celebrate advances in LGBT rights
Deputy Prime Minister Nick Clegg has released a video celebrating Pride in London, saying we should celebrate advances made for LGBT rights.
The video will be shown at Pride in London tomorrow.
Speaking to PinkNews Nick Clegg, Leader of the Liberal Democrats and Deputy Prime Minister said: “It is quite fitting that on the eve of London Pride weekend we were able to announce the final, crucial steps to making equal marriage a reality.
“From 10th December those couples who are currently in civil partnerships but want to enter into a marriage instead, will be able to do so.
“It has been a long struggle to get here and many people have worked tirelessly to ensure true marriage equality, but it has been worth it. This weekend we will be able to celebrate the advances our society has made for LGBT people, their friends and families.”
