Darragh

I come from a same sex family and so marriage equality is a hugely important issue to me personally.

I have felt constantly frustrated by the lack of equality in Northern Ireland, not only do I see my government telling me that my family doesn’t deserve legal recognition but I can see that the vast majority of people in Northern Ireland are in favour of marriage equality.

Our government is out of touch; those who believe that love only occurs between people the government approves of, a group who believe that not all of its people are equal is being given a bigger say than anyone else. This is unfair.
