Kritika Ashok, director of myartgallery.ie, and Richard Jackson, a renewable energy engineer, are a couple and are eagerly looking forward to voting Yes on May 22nd. This will be Kritika’s first vote as an Irish citizen, and one that she’s proud to cast to help realise the kind of country she wants for her children and for all of us.
“We’re very lucky that we could get married tomorrow, but many of our friends can’t. They aren’t even protected the same as a heterosexual married couple by law in our constitution. A civil partnership isn’t recognised as a family by law. Despite being each other’s confidantes, they can’t be each other’s next-of-kin. Please use your vote wisely and join us in making history on May 22nd.”
