Happy 1st Anniversary to same-sex marriages in Britain
Doesn't it make you proud that we are constantly recognising and developing in the direction of accepting each other as equals?
1971 Women get equal pay in Britain. Hurrah! I was a student and worked in a hotel. I had to train a new member of staff who was a man so he got more pay than me. It nearly choked me.
2010 The Equality Act becomes law. This law makes it unlawful for an employer to discriminate against employees because of race, colour, nationality, ethnic or national origin.
2014 On 13 March 2014, same sex marriages became legal in England with the first same sex marriages taking place on 29 March 2014.
Scotland followed later that year on 16 December 2014. Some people in civil partnerships converted to a marriage that very same day but new marriages had to wait until 31 December 2014.
Just look at what Cynthia Nixon says. Remember we all loved her in Sex in the City and then she surprised us all by revealing her same-sex partnership.
Elton John said it better than me. In a TV interview he said - I love Britain.
The people didn't just allow me to marry David:
they came out and threw confetti over us.
