Less than one hundred years ago women weren’t allowed vote until our ancestors fought and changed that for us. We now have that power to replicate that historic period in Irish history.

The marriage equality referendum is solely focused on the issue of marriage equality and will NOT directly impact on parenting rights or responsibilities of any child. It gives us all an opportunity to tell our kids that they are valued, and that treating them differently because of their sexuality is completely and utterly unacceptable.

I am voting YES to equality for my children.

I am voting YES because my children and everyone in Ireland should have the right to marry their partner whether they’re straight or gay.

I could be a parent to a LGBT child in the future and I want them to have the same rights as everyone else. I will be voting to change the law for the next generation of children with a YES on May 22nd.
