Paul Twocock, Chief Executive of Stonewall said: ‘We’re so thrilled that finally same-sex marriage will become a reality in Northern Ireland, given the devolved Government won’t be restored by midnight tonight. This is a historic moment for Northern Ireland, where same-sex couples will be able to say ‘I do’ from January 2020.
‘After many years of tireless campaigning, this huge moment of celebration is testament to the ongoing work of our partners at the Love Equality campaign. LGBT people in Northern Ireland have waited for too long for marriage equality and we can’t wait to see same-sex couples across Northern Ireland marrying the person they love.’
