STU­DENT GRAD­U­ATES WITH PRIDE

Diva (UK) - - News Round-Up -

Dur­ing her grad­u­a­tion cer­e­mony from Queen’s Univer­sity Belfast, stu­dent Ciara Cin­na­mond car­ried a rain­bow flag with her on­stage. This was an act of solidarity with the thou­sands of peo­ple who, at the same time, were march­ing for same-sex mar­riage in North­ern Ire­land. Ciara’s girl­friend and par­ents cheered her on from the au­di­ence. The Con­ser­va­tives re­cently signed a deal with the Demo­cratic Union­ist Party, which has re­peat­edly blocked same-sex mar­riage in North­ern Ire­land, to sup­port Theresa May’s mi­nor­ity gov­ern­ment in key votes.
