London vicar marries same-sex partner in defiance of church ban

LAST UPDATED // Monday, 23 June 2014 11:54 Written by // Andrew Shaw

A London vicar has married his same-sex partner, in defiance of the Church of England’s gay marriage ban.

Pink News UK reports Father Andrew Cain, of St Mary’s with All Souls in Kilburn, has just tied the knot with his partner of 14 years, Steve Foreshaw.

The vicar, who put up “Keep calm and support equal marriage” signs in two of his churches in January, had previously expressed his intention to press ahead with the wedding, despite the Church’s ban.
