Yesterday afternoon, 8,000 supporters of marriage equality attended last March for Marriage in Dublin before the marriage referendum in spring 2015
The government have responded to the Constitutional Conventions recommendation to hold a referendum on marriage equality in Ireland by saying there will be a referendum in 2015.
Honestly, how do the months slip by so quickly? Somehow it’s August already. And with August, once again comes the event that is starting to feel like a mini-Pride here in Dublin. I refer to, of course, LGBT Noise’s annual March for Marriage. This year’s March for Marriage (and hopefully the last!) will take place on Sunday 18th August at 3pm, assembling at City Hall on Parliament Street.
At noon, this Sunday, LGBT Noise, various same sex couples and LGBT allies will meet for a snog. Or more correctly, to stage a kiss-in, where couples will lock lips to further promote the support for marriage equality.
LGBT Noise invite you to Rally for Recognition at the 4th European Transgender Council! Come along this Friday, 7th September at 7pm in Dublin City University campus.

This week, I lost quite a bit of faith in the LGBT student movement. What started off as a link left on a wall of a Facebook group, turned into a week-long debate that has left me somewhat disillusioned and if I’m honest, a little bit heartbroken. I don’t know if you have heard of the offensive train wreck of a television show called Work It currently being aired by ABC?
As December approaches, the social and festive events keep a-coming – from Dublin to Cork to Galway, and from Limerick to Leitrim to Fermanagh. So get out there!
LGBT Noise are having a table quiz on 1st December next.

Thousands of people marched to the Department of Justice in Dublin yesterday, to protest the discrimination against lesbians, bisexual, gay and trans people in Ireland. Organised by LGBT Noise, the protest specifically asked for civil marriage equality.
The annual LGBT Noise March for Marriage took place this afternoon, setting out at 3pm from Dublin’s City Hall, Lord Edward Street. RTÉ reports that thousands attended. Estimates by those who were present put the crowd at 4,000 people.
Civil Partnership is NOT equality, so to show your derision at being a second-class citizen, march with LGBT Noise.
