The Most Inspiring British LGBT People Of 2016

The Most Inspiring British LGBT People Of 2016
- It was on 19 January 2016, just three days after his husband died suddenly on their honeymoon in Australia, that Marco Bulmer-Rizzi, grief-stricken and in shock, picked up the phone and set in motion a chain of events that would lead to legal and policy change in two countries – all while reigniting the campaign for equal marriage.
They were in Adelaide when his husband David Bulmer-Rizzi fell down some stairs late at night, cracking his skull. He died in hospital two days later. The authorities told his widower that because same-sex marriage was not legal in South Australia and because the state did not recognise overseas same-sex marriages, the death certificate would read “never married”. Because Marco Bulmer-Rizzi was not deemed the next of kin, all end-of-life decisions had to be approved by David’s father.
