#MarRef #YesToEquality

I stalked chatted to some of my fave Irish Instagrammers over the past little while and one thing I wanted to know from them was what they would be voting on May 22nd… Here are some of the answers:

“I will be voting a big fat YES. We live in such violent times and to still have love in the world is amazing and it should be celebrated regardless if it’s a man loving a man or a woman loving a woman and so on. Love is love and no one should be denied that.” – Lauren Bejaoui (@LolaBejaoui)

“On the 22nd of May 2015 I will be proudly voting YES on the Marriage Equality referendum! A person marrying another person regardless of their sexuality has absolutely no affect on society and it makes absolutely no difference if it is a man marrying a man, a woman marrying and woman or a man marrying a woman. It’s time to come together as an Irish society and vote YES for marriage and YES for equality. Mothers and fathers want all of their children to grow up in a country where they can have the same aspirations in life. The parents of gay and lesbian children want the same. I want that too #StandUp4Equality xo.” – Jo Archbold (@yo_im_jo)

“I know this is terrible but I’m not actually registered to vote… YET. I’ve just looked into obtaining a registration form as I am going to register so that I can vote yes for Marriage Equality in May.” – Nuala Gorham (@nualagorham)

“Yes yes and YES! Marriage equality is so important, it’s about love between two people, something for which gender should not come into the equation. Love is love.” – Louise O’Reilly (@StyleMeCurvy)

“Oh my God 109% I will be voting YES! I have no interest in getting married, the idea of it (the big party, being centre of attention, spending €40k on one day) literally repels me but at least I have a choice. Everyone should have the choice. I think the idea of the ‘perfect family’ being a mother, father and a few kids is outdated. Anyone who would rob another of their chance at happiness is not a good person and won’t be admired by their ancestors in years to come when our children’s children are wondering how something like equal marriage rights were ever even a question.” – Holly Shortall (@HollyShortall)

Needless to say, I agree with the girls and will be voting YES. Get out and vote, lads. It’s important.

    I don’t comment, however I browsed a lot of remarks on this page Instagirls:
    What they'll be voting on May 22nd…. I actually
    do have 2 questions for you if it’s allright.
    Is it simply me or does it look as if like a few of the responses appear
    as if they are written by brain dead people?
    😛 And, if you are writing at additional sites, I’d like to keep up with
    you. Would you list of every one of your shared pages like your Facebook page, twitter feed, or linkedin profile?
