Sharon & Franka apply for a marriage license

Rev Sharon Ferguson (52) and her partner Franka (49), applied for a civil marriage licence at Greenwich Register Office at the Town Hall in Woolwich on Tuesday 2 November in a direct challenge to the UK’s legal ban on same-sex marriage. Their application was refused. The couple plan to take legal action in the courts to strike down the prohibition on gay marriages.
