A historic day in England and Wales

December 22, 2005

Yesterday the first time in England and Wales that people of the same sex have been able to enter into a Civil Partnership giving many of the legal protections that married couples have.

I was lucky enough to be invited to a friends Civil Ceremony in London, no not Elton’s and was even more pleased to discover that they were unaware of the legal benefits as it was just an expression of their Love. A great cermony and good party afterwards!

I do have some sympathy with Peter Tatchell’s point that the new law is itself discriminatory but it is at least a step.
