Gay Couple of 49 Years Among First to Convert Civil Partnership to Marriage in England

A gay couple together for almost 49 years were among the first to be married under new laws in England allowing civil partnerships to be converted to marriage, reports LogoTV.

Roger192Roger Lockyer (87) and Percy Steven (75) were among the first couples in England to enter into a civil partnership in 2005.

Lockyer said:

“To me, it feels like reaching the top. We really are married. Which is what we have been for nearly half a century of course. But to have formal recognition of that I think is something that’s so unexpected and wonderful.”

Steven said that he is most looking forward to finally joining the couple’s utility accounts because he can now “ask for an account in both names.”

Same-sex marriage became legal in Scotland on Tuesday.  Northern Ireland is now the only part of the UK where gay marriage remains illegal.

Tennis Legend Martina Navratilova Marries Long-Time-Partner: VIDEO


Martina Navratilova married Julia Lemigova yesterday in New York City, The Huffington Post reports. The pair had been dating for eight years when earlier this year at the U.S. Open, in which Navratilova was competing in the doubles competition, Navratilova popped the question to Lemigova, a moment that was broadcast on the jumbotron to cheers from the assembled spectators. 

Navratilova and Lemigova spoke to the BBC shortly after saying "I do." Navratilova for her part commented that the experience of being able to marry the woman she loves "is just really odd."

“I’m 58 years old – I got married for the first time! It’s about time. Growing up as a gay woman you just don’t ever think about that. And then about ten years ago I thought ‘You know, I think within 10 years gay marriage will be legal – and here we are 10 years [later], making it legal.”

Navratilova made waves when she came out as bisexual in 1981 at the top of her game, so to speak. Despite the fact that over thirty years has passed since that time and LGBT civil rights have progressed leaps and bounds, no male tennis star has yet to come out, a fact that Navratilova also finds odd: “They’re so far in the closet I don’t even know who they are. It’s funny, sport has been at the forefront of so many civil rights issues, but it’s been not great on the gay rights issue.”

Navratilova won a total of 59 grand slams in her professional career and holds the record for the longest winning streak (74 matches) and is tied for most Wimbledon titles won (20) with none other than out activist and tennis legend in her own right Billie Jean King.
