In the run-up to Ireland’s Marriage Equality referendum on May 22nd, I’ve invited a series of guest posters– people from Ireland or who live here, of many different backgrounds and orientations- to share their thoughts on the referendum, the campaign, and what it means to them. Contributions to Guest Posts for Equality are welcome- drop me a message.
This one comes from one of my Dublin Roller Derby teammates. Dixie knocks me on my butt on a bi-weekly basis. Here’s what she has to say:
I LOVE a good wedding and why should some of my closest friends not have the same rights for their future as I have?
Some day I hope they all marry the people they love, and they, I, and all the other bridesmaids will raise a glass to their marriage(I’m totes a bridesmaid right?!). This is why I will be voting YES to equality next Friday.
