New Seanad offers opportunity to keep journey to LGBT equality progressing

08 June 2016

The new Seanad meets today for the first time, and includes three openly LGBT Senators and other strong advocates of equality for LGBT people

The new Seanad includes many strong supporters of equality for LGBT people both re-elected Senators and newly elected Senators, very many of whom campaigned actively for a yes vote in the Referendum last year.

This Oireachtas - Dáil and Seanad - now has a real opportunity to build on the phenomenal progress of the last year and make further transformative strides towards equality for LGBT people.
