Today is International Day Against Homophobia. Let’s celebrate love & diversity, and say no to bigotry & intolerance.
In March 2014, Britain embraced change and celebrated genuine love in all its forms by allowing same-sex marriage in England and Wales. Scotland has also passed legislation granting marriage equality. To further show the UK’s support for equality, the British embassy will march with a float at the DC Pride parade in June for the second year. Join us in celebrating diversity and showing our pride.
Britain is alive with pride. Love is GREAT Britain!
The Lanes in Brighton are awash with vintage gear, antiques and jewellery, all brought together around a historic network of narrow city streets. Whether you’re shopping or just exploring, the area is full of character and plenty of independent cafes to unwind in.
Equal Marriage Comes to Britain!
Britain has had civil partnerships since 2005, but a clear majority felt that we needed full marriage equality. As of last Saturday, that’s what we have. Our view is clear: Marriage is one of our society’s most important institutions. By opening it to all, we strengthen that institution. We also strengthen society more generally, because, as James Madison once wrote, “Equal laws protecting equal rights” are “the best guarantee of loyalty and love of country.”
