Sun 3 May 2015 In: International News View at Wayback

Picture by James Delaney A picture of two women kissing in front of a protester in Dublin is being shared all over the world, as Ireland counts down to a vote on marriage equality. On May 22 Ireland will hold the world’s first referendum on the issue, and the yes vote is expected to win out. Photographer James Delaney has captured a picture outside Trinity College of two women kissing as a protester against same-sex marriage holds a placard reading “God says no, nature says no, vote no”. Kieran Rose, Yes Equality spokesperson says the referendum offers the chance for lesbian and gay people to become equal citizens in the country they call home. "We are confident that a majority of Irish citizens believe that everyone should be free to marry the person they love and will vote yes in this referendum." Even Mrs Brown of popular TV show Mrs Brown’s Boys has weighed in on the issue, releasing a video where she says “When two people love each other, you should allow them to get married. What’s all the fecking fuss?”
