30 Years Since Decriminalisation
On Sunday 28th October 2012 at 3 p.m. in St Georges Church, High Street, Belfast, there will be a service to mark 30 years since the decriminalisation of same-sex relationships in Northern Ireland. The speaker is Jeff Dudgeon MBE.
Jeff Dudgeon is best known for his role in the case of Dudgeon vs United Kingdom, where he challenged the criminalisation of sexual relations between men at the European Court of Human Rights. When it concluded in 1982, the case forced Northern Ireland to bring its laws into line with the rest of the UK.
This event is organised by Changing Attitude Ireland.
