A change is coming and it is beautiful! Thousands march to demand same sex marriage in Northern Ireland.

Paula Geraghty Ireland,

20,000 took part in an historic protest for same sex civil marriage in Northern Ireland on June 13th 2015.

Northern Ireland is the only part of the United Kingdom where same sex civil marriage is not legal.

Even though Northern Ireland is part of the United Kingom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, politicians who are pro union work tirelessly to exclude the equality that other UK citizens enjoy from reaching the six counties.

The 1967 Abortion Act is another piece of legislation that has not been extended to Northern Ireland, discriminating against women.
