Organisations Say Yes To Love
At Marriage Equality, we're delighted to have the support of a wide range of organisations - all of whom believe in equality for same sex couples, our families, and our children.
Our experience has been that the intentions of a same sex couple wishing to celebrate their relationship has been the same as heterosexual couples. Unitarian ministers and celebrants therefore performed same sex blessings when few others were prepared to do so.
In April 2012, the USI Congress voted "to vehemently campaign on the full equalisation of rights regardless of sexual orientation, for full and equal marriage rights, full and equal adoption rights and for this union to recognise lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) members as full and equal members of society in recognition of the rights laid out above."
'AIM supports equality in relationships and calls on the government to ensure that equality and fairness is extended to all our children'.
Discrimination on the grounds of sexual orientation is a human rights violation.
When a straight young person imagines being 40 they are likely to see themselves as being happily married with kids. A gay young person is not allowed to imagine this.
We sincerely hope that through Marriage Equality's efforts, Gay and Lesbian people can enjoy true equality by being able to formalize their unions and finally gain the recognition of the Irish Law and its society.
On behalf of all the women who access our service, and for ourselves as lesbian and bi-sexual women, we call on this government to honour its commitment to equality fully, not in half-measures.
We believe that this campaign presents an opportunity to create a more inclusive society and overcome one of the barriers to the fight against poverty and exclusion.
By not extending equal marriage rights to gay and lesbian people who wish to marry, they are being discriminated against and being denied their fundamental human rights and equal treatment in the law with heterosexual people.
The ICCL is very happy to be associated with the work of Marriage Equality and strongly believes that only the introduction of civil marriage for same-sex couples will achieve full equality of status with opposite-sex couples.
The NWCI calls on the Government to legislate for equal access to civil marriage for lesbian and gay couples as a matter of equality and fairness...
NASC, the Irish Immigrant Support Centre, fully supports Marriage Equality's campaign to secure the right to civil marriage for same-sex couples.
We believe that it is a matter of justice and equality that lesbian and gay individuals have the right to decide whether or not they want to get married, the same way heterosexual couples do.
All people regardless of race, gender, religious belief or sexual orientation should be entitled to the same protection and privileges under the law.
