No Gay Marriage Here: The Northern Ireland Story | BBC Newsbeat

14 June 2015

Declan Harvey investigates why Northern Ireland is the only part of the UK to not allow same-sex couples to marry. With the recent ‘yes’ vote in the Republic of Ireland in favour of gay marriage and many other countries across Europe changing their laws to allow it, why is Northern Ireland different? We meet young gay people who say they’re embarrassed and frustrated at their country’s lack of progress and hear the strongly held arguments against change from the governing Democratic Unionist Party.

From daily The Morning Star in Britain:

Stormont ends gay blood ban

Thursday 1st September 2016

NORTHERN IRELAND: An insulting lifetime ban on gay men donating blood in the six counties was lifted yesterday.

Stormont Health Minister Michelle O’Neill’s decision came after a long campaign by gay rights activists and a series of court battles.

A similar ban in Britain was replaced in 2011 with rules that allowed gay men to give blood 12 months after their last sexual encounter with another man. Northern Ireland has now adopted the same policy.

    • Opinion polls say the majority of people in Northern Ireland want equal marriage including same sex marriage. However, the fundamentalist DUP party, which keeps Theresa May´s minority Conservative government in Britain alive, are homophobes.
