Transcript of Assembly

Welcome to L6HS's assembly The History of Gay Marriage in England. Are you a perpetrator of
discrimination ? Up until 1967, homosexuality was considered to be a criminal offence.

The Sexual Offences Act of 1967 slightly changed this in that it decriminalised homosexual acts in private between two men who were 21 years of age or more. The Act applied only to England and Wales and not the Merchant Navy or the Armed Forces.

1970 - First gay demonstration in the UK took place in Highbury Fields in Islington.

1971 - First gay march through London in protest of the age restriction.

1974 – First national lesbian conference in Canterbury.

1984- Chris Smith, MP for Islington South in London, first MP to come out as gay while in office.

1999 - Metropolitan police launch initiative against hate crimes, including homophobic crime. The Turn of the Millenium Do You Agree With the
New Legislation? IF SO OR IF NOT... Foreign Legislation - NIGERIA Nigeria backs law to jail all gays and those who hide them Do you still feel the same? Taking everything into account, is it your opinion or someone else's? Have you looked into the real reasons why you think that way? Have you ever been discriminated
against? 2000 - Government lifts the ban on lesbian
and gay men serving in the armed forces.

2001 - First same-sex partnerships registered in
London at the GLA.

2004 - Civil Partnership Bill introduced. ...CAN YOU JUSTIFY YOUR OPINION? ...WHY? Nigeria’s National Assembly has voted for a law to jail all gay people and anyone who fails to report a homosexual to the authorities 14 years prison for the couple and 10 for anyone else involved in the ceremony 2013 – The Commons voted in favour of the Marriage (Same Sex Couples) Bill (UK). Can you justify your opinion now? IS YOUR JUDGEMENT FAIR? Next time you judge something or someone, take their point of view into account and consider all the sides of an argument. NOT ON 'THE HOBBIT' OR
'THE LORD OF THE RINGS.' "a major step forward for equality and justice". Thank you for listening
