Arlene Foster urged members of the LGBTQ community to respect her right to oppose same-sex marriage as she became the first DUP leader to attend one of their events.
Ms Foster said she did not define anyone by their sexuality as she spoke at the PinkNews reception at Stormont.
Her appearance was the latest in a series of recent outreach initiatives by Ms Foster.
The DUP has been heavily criticised by LGBTQ activists for past derogatory comments about gay people and its ongoing resistance to same sex marriage in Northern Ireland.
Foster are demanding LGBTQ community to respect her rights, but does she respect LGBTQ community the right to oppose her anti-LGBTQ views and how she treat the LGBTQ community ? Seems like she think that her views are more superior to views of the LGBTQ community. Get real – it’s time for Foster to get into 2018 instead of living in 1918.
