Gay marriage in England and Wales a milestone

On Saturday new regulations came into effect allowing gay couples in England and Wales to enter the bond of marriage. This is a giant leap forwards, writes lesbian actor Heather Peace in the left-liberal daily The Independent: "There's a long way to go until our society achieves equality for LGBT people and we must not forget the bigger struggles faced by our brothers and sisters internationally. But equal marriage is a massive step and even if the tradition of marriage isn't something you're interested in, then just having the choice to reject it is something to celebrate...... With a bit more pressure, campaigning and fighting from our generation, the next generation will ridicule the fact that we had to fight at all."
