Russian LGBT Organisation calls on Irish people to rally for a Yes in the Upcoming Civil Marriage Equality Referendum & Register to Vote

With just 5 days left before the November 25th deadline our colleagues at the Russian LGBT Network have today, by video, called on Irish people to rally for civil marriage equality and register to vote saying "In many countries Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual & Trans people do not have this opportunity but you have and its very important that you use it - register to vote".

Speaking today Michael Barron, Founding Director of BeLonG To said, “Over the past number of years BeLonG To has developed close ties of solidarity with the Russian LGBT Network, working together on international policy, visiting each other and sharing learning. In Russia due to ‘anti-propaganda laws’ the basic freedoms of the LGBT community are being eroded. LGBT young people in particular are isolated, targeted increasingly at real physical risk”

Mr. Barron continued:

“Having the opportunity to vote for civil marriage equality is beyond the realms of possibility in Russia. This is why I believe this appeal is so important. In Ireland we have an enormous opportunity to use our democratic right to enshrine protections and rights for the LGBT community in our constitution. The LGBT community and our allies in Russia and elsewhere who experience daily oppression are watching. Securing civil marriage equality in Ireland would resonant beyond these borders and would provide hope and energy to others.”
