Politicians to discuss gay issues; EQUALITY.

POLITICIANS will meet today to discuss equal rights for gay families as part of Dublin's Pride Festival.

The public meeting will see guest speakers from a number of political parties debating equal rights, responsibilities and protections for lesbian, bisexual, gay and trans-gender families.

It will take place at 7pm in Dublin City Council's Civic Offices on Wood Quay.

Yesterday marked the 20th anniversary of decriminalisation of homosexuality in Ireland.

Kieran Rose, the head of the Gay and Lesbian Equality Network, said yesterday: "We have come a very long way since the State regarded gay people as criminals. Ireland has changed."

The Dublin Pride festival is running until Sunday.
