The wait is over – please join us outside court tomorrow morning to hear the judgment

Dear supporters,

We’ve waited a long time for this moment. In less than 24 hours, the judges will hand down their ruling in our appeal against the government’s ongoing ban on mixed-sex civil partnerships.

Please join us outside the Royal Courts of Justice on the Strand in London at 9.30am on Tuesday for breakfast and a photo call, before coming with us to Court No. 74 for the judgment. Please see our Facebook page for details: 

Whatever the judgment, we need to show that opening civil partnerships to all is not just fair and popular, but also the right thing for so many families and children across the country.

Let’s get the biggest crowd possible outside court on Tuesday to show our strength of feeling. 

Whether you’re there in person or in spirit, we thank you for all your solidarity. Your support over these last few years has brought us all closer than ever to making this change possible. 

Thank you again for your support.

Warm wishes, 

Rebecca and Charles
