“Jeremy Pemberton has been a Church of England priest for 33 years. He has worked in parishes in various parts of England, and in theological education in England and the DR Congo. He is presently Senior Chaplain and Bereavement Service Manager for a large NHS Trust in Lincolnshire. His other work is as a professional singer at Southwell Minster, the Church of England cathedral for Nottinghamshire.

In 2014 he was the first member of the clergy to marry their partner. This drew a lot of press attention, and brought him into conflict with his church, as a consequence of which he lost a job promotion. An Employment Tribunal last year ruled against him in a case under the Equality Act alleging that he had been discriminated against because of his sexuality and marital status. He is appealing the judgment.”
