Today's High Court (ruling to deny appeal to former Relate relationship counsellor Gary McFarlane, who refused to provide services to gay couples, has been welcomed by Stonewall.

Director of Public Affairs Derek Munn said:

'Stonewall welcomes the Court of Appeal's decision. You can’t refuse a service to a person based on their gender, race or disability and you can’t on the basis of their sexual orientation either.
