Gerry Adams is the leader of Sinn Féin. Originally from Belfast, he is presently a TD for Louth. He says everyone who supports equality must come out and vote for this important amendment which provides citizens who are gay or transgender with the same rights and entitlements as other citizens.
“The Proclamation, which is our mission statement, is as relevant today as it was in 1916, makes it clear that we cherish all the children of the nation equally. The fact is if you don’t want to marry someone who’s gay… well, what’s the harm? Why should you stop someone else from doing that? Let’s make sure that this vote isn’t lost. Let’s come out on May 22nd and Vótáil Tá.”
