"Equal, the Campaign for Equal Marriage in the Church of England, is campaigning for a change in the teaching and practice of the Church of England to allow all couples to marry in church, regardless of their gender, sex or sexuality. This principle of equality already applies in English law and in some other churches.

The Church of England’s current official position is that only opposite-sex couples can marry in its churches. Same-sex couples cannot marry in church. They cannot even officially receive a blessing after a civil marriage. Christians who have married their same-sex partner are discriminated against in the ministry of the church, both lay and ordained. Couples where one or both partners are trans are also liable to discrimination if they wish to be married in church."
