Mathew is a 27 year old Social Work student in University College Cork. For him this vote is about Ireland being on the right side of history and creating a society where all people are treated equally. He wants Irish society to reach a point where we don’t define a person by their sexual orientation.
“I am voting for yes for to simple reasons: for equality, and for love. Around the world Ireland is known for it’s warm welcoming spirit. Yet here at home we do not fully embrace and accept the LGBT community and give them the same rights they are entitled to as citizens. All they ask is to be able to share their love for one another.”
