PM David Cameron Applauds Passage of Marriage Equality Law, Says More Work to Be Done
Prime Minister David Cameron has penned a piece in the Evening Standard praising passage of Britain's marriage equality law but warning that there are other LGBT subjects to tackle.
I have backed this reform because I believe in commitment, responsibility and family. I don’t want to see people’s love divided by law. Making marriage available to everyone says so much about the society that we are and the society that we want to live in — one which respects individuals regardless of their sexuality. If a group is told again and again that they are less valuable, over time they may start to believe it. In addition to the personal damage that this can cause, it inhibits the potential of a nation. For this reason too, I am pleased that we have had the courage to change...
...The UK is rated as the best place in Europe for LGBT equality — but we cannot be complacent. There are subjects we must continue to tackle: not least taking a zero-tolerance approach to homophobic bullying, and caring for elderly members of the LGBT community. Rest assured, this Government will work tirelessly to make sure this happens.
