Mary McAleese – Former President of Ireland – Why My Family is Voting YES to Marriage Equality
“We who are parents, brothers and sisters, colleagues and friends of Ireland’s gay citizens, we know how they have suffered because of second class citizenship. This referendum is about them, and them alone.
The only children who are certain to be affected by this referendum, are Ireland’s gay children. It is their future that is at stake. They are, unfortunately, too few in number to win this referendum on their own. We the majority, we have to make it happen for them.”
