This is a question no one is asking after LGBT Noise’s March For Marriage on Sunday. In 2009 Over 3,000 people took part in that Year’s March For Marriage. This year the number is down to 2000 (Figure from Irish Times). That is compared to the 5,000 22,000 people took part in Dublin Pride Parade and the 100,000 who lined the streets of Dublin for Pride.
Why is this?
Is it people are willing to give the Civil Partnership Bill a chance? (Despite its ignorance of children)
Is it due to the general confusion about what the bill does? (I know I have been asked questions on this)
Is LGBT Noise actually on the sidelines on Gay Public Opinion?
Are people fed up of the Marriage Debate and want a quite life for a bit?
Who knows the real answer. But it will be interesting to see how this goes on.
