Motion text

That this House welcomes LGBT Pride Celebration Month; understands that Pride Month raises awareness of discrimination and highlights the issues affecting the LGBT community; notes that this year's celebrations followed substantial progress on equalities legislation around the world, with couples in Scotland, England, Wales and Ireland recently, and now the US, having the right to equal marriage under law; commends both the Irish people for voting in their millions to recognise equal marriage and the Supreme Court in the US for its decision to abolish any ban on same-sex marriage across all 50 states; further understands that this recent progress for the LGBT community comes after decades of campaigning from civic society and congratulates them on their successes; further understands that, although substantial progress has been made, there is still work to be undertaken; further notes that it is illegal to be gay in 75 countries and is punishable by death in 10; and believes that this highlights the need to ensure that the campaign for LGBT equality continues.
