Equal on BBC One’s ‘Sunday Morning Live’

We have been contacted by BBC One to invite us to take part in a discussion on whether faith groups in Great Britain need to become more inclusive to members of the LGBTQIA+ community.

This is sparked off by the fact that on 6 September the Church in Wales (which is of course separate from the Church of England) is considering a measure to allow same-sex couples to have their civil partnership or wedding blessed by the Church (see later item).

We’re naturally delighted to have been asked to contribute to this discussion. Andrew Foreshew-Cain, one of the founders of Equal and a Church of England priest who is married to his partner Stephen, will be speaking on our behalf.

This episode of ‘Sunday Morning Live’ is on 5 September from 10.00 to 11.00, with this segment expected to start at about 10.30. The episode details are at https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/m000zgn0, and the programme will be available on iPlayer soon after it has been broadcast.
