Yes, everyone and their grandmother, cat, and parrot are talking about the BIG WEDDING and of course there has never been a better time to start a move for gay marriage in the U.K
Gay rights activist Peter Tatchell wants Prince Willam & Kate Middleton to support gay marriage. Mr.Tatchell is currently pursuing full marriage equality at the European Court of Human Rights and has stated that civil partnerships are just not enough.
Mr. Tatchell did say something that is very true: "There would be an uproar if the government banned Jewish people to get married and offerd them civil partnerships instead. We would call it an anti-semitic law; something we would expect in Nazi Germany, not Democratic Britain. Well, Jews are not banned from getting married but gay people are."
Well, I totally agree with him and I think that having Civil Partnership for gays and not marriage makes it clear that there still is a difference between straight people and gays in this country. It is about time that the U.K embrace the diversity of its people and allow equal marriage to gays.
Do you think it is a good time to bring up the gay marriage issue now with with the Royal wedding or do you think it is a waste of time? It's over to you now and have your say!
