We couldn’t be happier about the news in Ireland! Hopefully they are the first of many nations to take a nationwide stance on marriage.

“We’re the first country in the world to enshrine marriage equality in our constitution and do so by popular mandate. That makes us a beacon, a light to the rest of the world, of liberty and equality. So it’s a very proud day to be Irish,” said Leo Varadkar, a Cabinet minister who came out as gay at the start of the governments effort to amend Ireland’s conservative Catholic constitution.

“People from the LGBT community in Ireland are a minority. But with our parents, our families, or friends and co-workers and colleagues, we’re a majority,” said Varadkar. “For me it wasn’t just a referendum. It was more like a social revolution,” he said.

Congratulations to all those who took part in this landmark event! Look out for more of your favorite musicians’ tweets about Ireland.
