Past Marriage Equality Events
From launching groundbreaking research, to hosting internationally acclaimed guest speakers, to great nights out in aid of our campaigns, we're working hard to make sure our messages for marriage equality are heard.

On March 9th, 2015, Yes Equality: The Campaign for Civil Marriage was launched in The Pillar Room of the Rotunda Hospital to focus on informing voters to vote YES on May 22nd through canvassing, registration drives all over Ireland and ultimately to achieve marriage equality.
On Sunday, August 18th 2013, 5,000 supporters of equal rights for same sex couples and families marched from City Hall to Stephen's Green at the 5th annual LGBT Noise March for Marriage. If you missed it catch some highlights, or just relive the day, here.
Our Just Love gig rocked the roof off the Round Room in Dublin's Mansion House on Bank Holiday Sunday, October 29th 2012. We were delighted with the levels of support we received from so many of Ireland's leading musicians, who generously donated their time and talent in support of Marriage Equality, and to everyone who bought tickets and came along to join us on the night.
On Wednesday, June 27th 2012, Marriage Equality supporters gathered in Café Joly in the National Library to learn why visiting your TD is so important, how it really can make a big difference to the campaign, and what to say when you do visit a TD in his or her constituency clinic. We have a video from the night as well, so click through to watch!
On Saturday, June 9th 2012, Ireland's top LGBT choirs came together to put on an unforgettable concert in aid of Marriage Equality. With the spectacular St Fin Barre's Cathedral in Cork as a venue, and the amazing vocal stylings of Glória and Choral ConFusion to inspire us all, we couldn't have asked for a better night!
We were delighted with the levels of support we received from so many of Ireland's leading artists, who generously donated their works to be auctioned off in support of Marriage Equality, as well as several art lovers who kindly donated pieces to our event. Thanks to their generosity and support we were able to raise over €12,000 towards our campaign for equality for same sex couples, our families and our children!
On November 15, 2010, Marriage Equality and the National Lesbian and Gay Federation (NLGF) invited Evan to share his thoughts and opinions in an interview with Brian Finnegan, editor of Ireland's Gay Community News (GCN). During the interview, he challenged the notion that the Irish Constitution could be seen as a barrier to marriage equality, arguing instead that constitutional provisions in relation to equality should compel equal access to marriage for same sex couples and equality for our families.
On September 8th, 2010, Marriage Equality's Voices of Children Conference provided a space to hear the stories of the failure of the State to hear the voices and provide for the rights of children - the Civil Partnership Act that fails to address the rights of children in same-sex parented families; the failure of the equality and human rights infrastructure which allows a Government to legislate in a manner that discriminates against same sex couples and their children.
Marriage Equality proudly celebrated our second birthday on Valentine's Day 2010, with champagne, cake and beautiful vocals from Ireland's legendary Brian Kennedy.
