from BBC News:

Ruth Davidson has been told by the prime minister that any Conservative deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) will not affect LGBTI rights.

The Scottish Conservative leader, who is gay, plans to marry her partner in the near future.

The DUP opposes same-sex marriage, with Northern Ireland the only part of the UK where it is not legal.

Ms Davidson said she had been given an assurance that gay rights would not be eroded in return for DUP support.

In a tweet sent on Friday afternoon, Ms Davidson highlighted a speech she made in Belfast about the importance of equal marriage.
