Northern Ireland Assemblyman Mike Nesbitt was opposed to gay marriage. Not any more, it appears.
Today he appeared on BBC local radio. When asked “should gay people be able to get married”, he replied, “Yes, they should.”
He admitted he had “caused hurt” by not supporting gay marriage sooner. “There is someone in my circle of acquaintances who does not live in this country because they are gay and will never come back again. That’s wrong. I don’t want a Northern Ireland where people feel although they are born here they can no longer live here because they are gay.”
Gay Activist challenges the Northern Ireland Assembly to get cracking and introduce gay marriage as soon as possible. It is a measure which is long overdue.
