A controversial poster claiming “Jesus had two Dads” will appear on Dublin transport today to highlight the continuing campaign for gay marriage.
The posters highlight the difference between Civil Partnership and Civil Marriage, pointing out that Civil Partnership, which was recently legaized in Ireland is not equality. The group also unveiled its new-look website to coincide with the launch.
Noise organiser Max Krzyzanowski says the posters are a specific reminder to the public and the government that gay people still don’t have the same rights as straight people.
The posters will cause controversy in some quarters as they contain the slogan “Jesus had two Dads “
Organiser Hazel Cullen said “Gay families are a reality in today’s Ireland but are still ignored under Civil Partnership.”
The poster campaign also announces the date of Noise’s third annual March for Marriage which will take place on the 14th of August this year.
Founded in November 2007, Noise is an independent non-party political group which is campaigning for the provision of civil marriage for all people in Ireland irrespective of gender and sexual identity. Noise is also active in highlighting other areas of discrimination against LGBT people.
