NEC Policy statement on same-sex relationships - ReadingLib - 02-06-2018

The Liberal Party is a socially inclusive, secular and non-judgemental organisation and applauds the strides made in the nations acceptance of same sex relationships and unions. The party has a long history of supporting LGBT issues and pioneered civic partnership in Liverpool prior to national legislation.
 
It welcomes any form of relationship between consenting adults which provides a deeper, more fulfilling and beneficial personal life and is not exploitative or manipulative.
 
We support any formal or informal coupling, be it heterosexual, same sex or multiple partner without prejudice or comment.
 
Those wishing to have their relationship formally recognised should be able to select the most appropriate framework, be it civil union or marriage.
 
Such relationship should then be fully supported in law so as to guarantee basic rights of liberty, property and security and to ensure none shall be enslaved by poverty, ignorance or conformity.
