One Year on from the Marriage Referendum - 412 Lesbian and Gay Couples Married.

20 May 2016

Marking the anniversary of the marriage referendum result last year.

This weekend last year was an extraordinary and joyful weekend for LGBT people, their families and indeed all of Ireland, when with great generosity, Irish people voted that their lesbian and gay children, brothers and sisters, family members, friends and community members should be equal citizens and equal in our Constitution for the very first time.

However, there are still significant challenges yet to be overcome to ensure that all LGBT people are safe.

Irish people voted for LGBT people to be equal. Now we need to deliver on that.
