How would you like to be in with the chance to win a brand new iPAD and be part of the campaign for marriage equality all at the same time?
Do you have a daughter, son, sister, brother, mum, dad, auntie, uncle, grandmother, grandfather, friend or anyone else who is supportive of marriage equality? Do you both think it’s totally unfair that same sex couples cannot get married? Have no option to marry the person that they love just because of their sexuality? Perhaps you or someone you know is already in a long-term committed same sex relationship and are dying to give your family and/or friends a day out? Or perhaps you both find it heartbreaking that while our heterosexual siblings, friends and other relatives can get married your LGBT relatives and friends can’t?
Well here’s how you can make a difference, keep the campaign for marriage equality fresh and be in with a chance to win a brand new iPAD. Simply make a short film, under 3 minutes, in a format that can be uploaded to YouTube, with messages from your family member or friend outlining why they support marriage equality for same sex couples and the best one wins!
Stuck for ideas? Perhaps you would like to know what 85-year-old Madeleine Connolly thinks about equality for same sex families and why she believes that her lesbian and gay friends should have the choice to get married, to have their families recognised and protected.
