Dear Katherine and Ann Louise,

Best of luck in your court challenge. It's not just you that's in there arguing for equality we are all there with you arguing for equality. By the way I wish to thank Ann Louise for signing my copy the book Our Lives Out Loud at the INTO LGBT conference back in October 2009.

Take care

Anthony & Barry

Good luck Ann-Louise and Katherine and thanks for continuing with your courageous journey which has already and will hopefully continue to improve rights for us all.

Best wishes


Paul Hewett

My best to you both in your quest for equality in the eyes of the State and of your fellow citizens.

Best of luck to you both. While I think it's wrong that it should even be necessary for you to be fighting this battle, you are paving the way for everyone in this country to have their right to happiness and security upheld. When I think of the difference that my husband and little girl have made to my life, it makes me angry to think that anybody else should be denied this just because of their sexual orientation. go n Eiri an bothar libh.
