Northern Irish women are UK citizens, and we are leaving them in the most desperate of situations - selling their children's Christmas toys, resorting to payday lenders, to finance a medical procedure that is fully-funded for residents in every other part of the UK, due to politics. This isn't good enough.
Theresa May may be a woman but she is directly threatening the rights, freedoms and lives of women along with that of LGBT+ people, working class people, people from ethnic minorities and disabled people. Our aim in marching on Downing Street is to demand that this ends, and to show that we will not quietly go along with our right to exist being sold down the river. Wear red and join us at Whitehall at 12 noon (or online using the hashtags #NoDUPDealMarch and #RedRiver) and tell the government that we will not stand by.
'So why is everyone cussing the RAC?'
The DUP have been making headlines over the last few days as reporters scramble to see what kind of deal they strike with
This should be easy, right?
While I find it hard to categorise the DUP as either a friend or an ally, I do agree with the Prime Minister when she says that we need to work together in the interests of the whole United Kingdom.
If such a partnership is pursued, The Conservatives - at the very least - have an opportunity and an obligation to demonstrate to their partners in the DUP why they too need to think again about LGBT people, our rights and our needs, and start actively working to achieve equality for LGBT people in Northern Ireland. It's vital that the Conservative Party stand firm on LGBT equality, and the Prime Minister makes that clear from the outset.
