Just Love? - Billboards
On Tuesday, October 4th, 2011 Marriage Equality launched our "Just Love?" campaign to highlight the discrimination that same-sex couples in Ireland continue to experience as a result of the lack of marriage equality. Although civil partnership, introduced at the beginning of 2011, offers legal recognition to same sex couples relationships as well as many of the rights and obligations that are available to married couples, it is not marriage and it therefore not equality. Along with a short film Rory's Story and Missing Pieces, a marriage audit report detailing 169 legislative differences between civil partnership and marriage, Marriage Equality has also launched a "Just Love?" poster campaign showing images of real couples who are affected by this marriage ban.
In early October 2011, posters and billboards were put up at strategic locations across Dublin city, as well as being distributed online, and nationwide through print media. The posters show real couples and families, and highlight the continued, urgent need for equality for same-sex couples, our families and our children.
We would love to be able to see our billboards and posters on streets all across Ireland. Could you help us roll out our posters and billboards nationwide? Please click here to donate to our campaign.
Did you see our posters around town? We'd love it if you could take a photo of them and send them on to us! Email firstname.lastname@example.org
A Note About QR Codes:
QR (or Quick Response) codes are a type of barcode that can be read by downloading a QR Code Reader app (many are free apps) to your Smartphone. The QR Codes featured on our Just Love? posters and billboards direct you to Rory's Story on YouTube.
