Heterosexual UK couple seek ‘gay’ union

November 10, 2010

Londonders Tom Freeman and Katherine Doyle are instead seeking to have a civil partnership, a form of legal union available in Britain only to same-sex couples.

Gay rights activists are backing the couple’s bid in an attempt to legalise gay marriage.

Activist Peter Tatchell said “denying heterosexual couples the right to have a civil partnership is heterophobic“.

Discrimination is discrimination.  If civil unions are good and ‘equal’ for the gay, then it should be just as available for heterosexuals…. Just like marriage.
