UCD Students’ Union and the UCDLGBTQ+ society launched #VoteForME, their Marriage Equality campaign this week.

The #VoteForMe campaign aims to show people how the upcoming referendum is not solely about the LGBTQ+ community but about everyone in the country. During the launch, all students in the university were encouraged to tweet #VoteforME and give their own personal reason as to why they were in favour of Marriage Equality.

You can take a look at some of the reasons why UCD students are asking people to vote yes below:

Reasons varied from ‘There shouldn’t be 169 differences between my parents’ marriage and my best friends’ relationship’ to ‘No-one has ever asked them to ‘civil union’ them’.

Feargal Hynes, the president of UCD Students’ Union stated: "This campaign is of personal importance to students. It is simply something that they see as normal and are determined to make a reality on May 22nd. Students want to create the world they want to live in and the Marriage Equality campaign is a perfect way to help shape and develop that world."
