First Minister and DUP leader Arlene Foster being anti-gay and ‘will keep blocking same-sex marriage in NI’

First Minister and DUP leader Arlene Foster has said her party will keep using the contentious petition of concern to block same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland for at least another five years.


Mrs Foster insisted her party was not anti-gay, but that online abuse from LGBT activists had made the party’s support even less likely.

“Some of the abuse that is directed at me and colleagues online is very, very vicious,” she said.


It’s not true what First Minister and DUP leader Arlene Foster says, her and her party DUP are anti-gay. Arlene Foster is not working for any LGBTQ people within Northern Ireland, she only represents her own views on same-sex marriage and she is rejecting other views than her own. She and her party DUP is playing the victim and according to her it’s LGBTQ community that is the big bully… DUP and Arlene Foster is not better than Russian President Putin.
