Gay hustings in Northern Ireland deemed a success

I hadn't heard this hustings meeting was planned, but it seems to have been successful, even though the UUP, Sinn Fein and DUP people were not present, either because they could not, or would not, attend. Ah well, those Northern Irish know their own business, I daresay, but it seems a very peculiar notion of 'success' to me. Northern Ireland sure could do with a more positive attitude on many things, not least homosexuality.

UPDATE: (Saturday 30APR05 0900 BST) Unfortnately the organising group The Rainbow Project seems to be suffering a funding crisis; yes, it surely is a 'success'.
