So it’s Ireland in the 21st and gay rights are a major issue. The fight for true equality, same-sex marriage, is well underway but who represents us. There is GLEN, NGLF, and ÉAGLE and other groups, but who will represent us in this fight for true equality. The way things are the Government can pick and choose who to negotiate with on equality issues.
We need to follow the example that the Spanish have set for us in their successful campaign for marriage equality. We need to form one group representing every LGBT group in Ireland to fight for true equality in this country. This is the only way we can unite to get what we deserve our basic right’s, our basic human rights, the right to be treated the same as everyone else in this country.
This grouping would represent every group in the country, rights groups, social groups, sports groups, youth groups, and college groups. Only united can we stand up to government and be united no matter what political creed we subscribe to. That way we can have members in all political parties and make our demands known. The only way we can achieve true equality is by coming together and fighting the good fight.
We deserve equality, we need to unite to get it!
