LGBT Activists in Northern Ireland
Northern Ireland was the only UK region where same-sex couples could not officially register their relationship. In the coming 2020, this distinction between regions was erased.
Same-sex couples can now register a marriage, and those who were married in other countries can receive its official recognition. The first same-sex weddings in Northern Ireland will take place in early February, as couples must announce their intention to register their relationship in 28 days.
Northern Ireland was the most traditional region of the United Kingdom: gay marriage was legalized in 2014 throughout the rest of its territory. For six years, there has been a struggle between the British Parliament in Westminster and the autonomous parliament of Northern Ireland. On October 7, 2019, Westminster passed a law that legalizes same-sex marriage and abortion in Northern Ireland from January 13, 2020.
Until now, termination of pregnancy in Northern Ireland was permitted only if it threatened the physical or psychological health of the woman.
