He was speaking at a Rally against the Conscience Clause Bill in Newry on Saturday.

“We need as many people as possible to come out, loud and proud and say that discrimination against our LGB & T community is unacceptable.

“We, as a society, must send out a very clear message that the days of banning certain sections of society from shops or services are long gone.

“In the past signs read, no dogs no blacks no Irish, those signs were wrong, that discrimination was wrong and any attempt to recreate that type of discrimination today against the LGB & T community is also wrong.”

He added, “Sinn Féin will oppose any attempt to undermine the rights of all people in our society to have equal and fair service when buying goods and services.”
