Northern Ireland remains the only part of the UK not to allow same-sex unions, five years after marriage equality was introduced in England, Scotland and Wales.

Now, a filmmaker who was kicked out of a Christian group he was missionary with for being gay, has launched the #LoveIsAllWeHave campaign, hoping to put an end to the discrimination.

Matt Hyndman created an emotive short film for the campaign, telling the story of a young gay Northern Irish man finding a letter from his late mother. She tells him to fight for his love to be “recognised in the same way mine was.”
