The Democratic Unionist Party has been criticised for snubbing a Belfast Pride event.

The event, held yesterday, was joined by politicians from all major parties – except the DUP.

Titled Pride on the Hill, it featured speakers from each party and was held at Stormont.

DUP assembly member Jim Wells reportedly told a Pride organiser that he would not take part in the “repugnant” event.

    Jim Wells seems to be particularly homophobic. He claims that this represents the views of unionists, but that is not true of all unionists. Politicians like him are holding back movement towards a more tolerant and integrated society here in NI.
