Bakery wins ‘gay cake’ court appeal

The manager of a Belfast bakery said he was “delighted and relieved” after the Supreme Court ruled that his company was not discriminating against a customer when it refused to make a cake iced with the slogan “support gay marriage”.

Gareth Lee, who ordered the cake, said he found the decision concerning “not just for gay people, but every single one of us”. Human rights campaigner Peter Tatchell and John O’Doherty, director of  the Northern Ireland LGBT organisation, Rainbow Project, debate.
