'I was there last summer, I made a very big intervention on why Northern Ireland is the only part of the United Kingdom where you can not have same sex marriage and it's an issue that is very close to my heart and one that I wanted categoric assurance from the Prime Minister on, and I received'.
Ruth Davidson has been told by the prime minister that any Conservative deal with the Democratic Unionist Party (DUP) will not affect LGBTI rights.
Ms Davidson was elected as leader of the Scottish Conservatives in 2011 after opposing a similar plan put forward by rival Murdo Fraser, now the party's finance spokesman.
Many commentators focused on the DUP vetoing the introduction of same-sex marriage in Northern Ireland in 2015, in opposition to the rest of the United Kingdom, and in stark contrast to this country which voted in favour of same-sex marriage in a referendum.
Speaking on the BBC's Good Morning Scotland programme he gave the example of the Scottish fishing industry which is anxious about Brexit negotiations.
"A party that constantly misuses its veto in this way is not a party that shares Stonewall's values or the values of most people across the United Kingdom", she said. "One of them is country, one of the others is LGBTI rights", Davidson said.
In a meeting with May on Friday (9 June), Davidson said she wants "categoric assurance" over the DUP's attitude to LGBTI people.
Britain's Conservatives need to talk to other political parties and find a way to deliver an "open" Brexit, Ruth Davidson, leader of the Scottish Conservatives, said after the party failed to win a majority in a national election.
The DUP, which returned 10 MPs to Westminster, has garnered a reputation for its strong and controversial views on a number of social issues.
Mr Fraser said having a larger group of MPs in Westminster would "make a huge difference" to the influence of the Scottish Conservatives on issues including Brexit.
She added: "The prime minister has already made it clear that it is not going to be a formal coalition, so let's see how the future days go ahead".
"Folk might remember I fought a leadership campaign on the other side of that particular argument", she said.
"It is the policy of both the Conservative party and the UK Labour party to respect the Brexit referendum result".
Who are the DUP?
The Scottish Tory leader hopes to convince the DUP to allow same-sex marriages in Northern Ireland.
