The Lesbian and Gay Psychology Section of the British Psychological Society (BPS) welcomes the move by the British Government to introduce Civil Partnerships in December 2005. However, civil partnerships are not the same thing as marriage. We also agree with the resolution by the American Psychological Association (APA), which argues that laws against same-sex marriage are a form of discrimination based on sexual orientation. In spite of the introduction of civil partnerships, laws against same-sex marriage still operate in the United Kingdom.
