      Harlow, United Kingdom

The current Government’s has proposed to allow same sex marriage, including important measures to change the law so that individuals can legally change their gender while remaining married, an opt-in for religious institutions who wish to perform same sex marriages and protection from legal challenge for those religious institutions who do not.

Harlow constituency's MP, Robert Halfon, recently voted against this proposed legislation at it's second reading. He will have to vote again at it's third reading in the House of Commons. We need him to vote for the LGBT people of Harlow and vote in favour.

We need him to stand up for the LGBT community of Harlow, helping them to achieve full equality and freedom from discrimination in any form, and support the current legislation proposal for same sex marriages.

 

To:
Robert Halfon MP, Member of Parliament
I've just signed the following petition addressed to: Robert Halfon MP

----------------

I urge you to support same sex marriage when a Bill is brought before Parliament.

I implore you to support the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender (LGBT) community of Harlow to achieve full equality and freedom from discrimination in any form.

Sincerely,
[Your name]

      "I think it's very important for everyone in America to realize right now the state of our country, not just on this issue but on a lot of issues, that it is time to get active again. People have just sat back and just sort of said, oh, let somebody else do it for a long time, and we're seeing what's happening to the country, even freedom of speech. It's not going well. So I think this is a real opportunity for people to see, yes, if you do get out and you do get active, there are other people there. You just have to seek them out."

      LGBT people deserve to get married if they want to. Their sexuality shouldn't be made a restriction of their rights, and their sexualities should be respected in the same way that heterosexuals are.

      Same sex couples should have the same marriage rights as straight ones. The same should apply to any couple where either or both people in the relationship are going through, or have gone through, gender reassignment.
