As the date for the referendum on same-sex marriage draws near, BeLonG To, the national organization for Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) young people, has released a new online video that calls for young people and parents to go out and vote ‘yes’!

The video, written and directed by Aoife Kelleher and Hugh Rodgers, shows how everyone can do their part by encouraging others to vote on May 22nd. Familiar faces such as Brian Gleeson, Aaron Heffernan, Ruth McCabe, Steve Wall, Elva Trill, and Kelly Campbell can be seen throughout the ad heading down to the polls and gathering their friends and families to join them.

The Founding Director of BeLonG To, Michael Barron, stated that by voting ‘yes’, Ireland will be made a better place for future generations and that he hopes that the ad will show those of older generations “just how strongly young people feel about marriage equality.”
