LOOK – Gay Soldiers Want Cuddles When They Return From Killing Civilians In Illegal Occupations.
This makes me vomit. Such a bad message.
From the ‘Thing Maker’……
“Separate but equal is not equal,” says the UK’s Coalition for Equal Marriage, in a campaign heightening with the release of a heart-warming viral video.
There’s currently a consultation happening in England and Wales as the government looks into marriage equality. Since 2004’s Civil partnership Act went through, same-sex couples in the UK can register their relationships and receive many of the same rights as their straight counterparts, but their union is not called a ‘marriage’.
The government’s consultation comes as a result of Prime Minister David Cameron’s announcement in September 2011 that same-sex civil marriage would be legalised by the next general election.
The new viral video’s director Mike Buonaiuto tells PinkNews.co.uk: “The short film shows British forces returning home to greet their loved ones, with the reunion of one soldier and his partner soon turning into a surprise marriage proposal.
“The film looks to tackle the opposition head on, arguing if all, regardless of sexuality have the right to serve in the British military, risking their lives for our national security, then all should be able celebrate their love and commitment with civil marriage, free from discrimination.”
