Ireland Invites International Same-Sex Couples To Say 'I Do': VIDEO


With Ireland’s historic vote in favor of same-sex marriage only days old, Tourism Ireland has released a new video promoting the country as a wedding and honeymoon destination for gay couples, reports The Journal.

The new campaign Ireland Says I Do - which is being rolled out in Britain, the United States, Canada, the Nordic region, Australia, France, Spain, Italy and Germany - has been developed over the past year in anticipation of a Yes vote.

Tourism Ireland states:

“Yes, it’s all about love in Ireland, from fun-tastic LGBT events like The Outing (the world’s first ever LGBT matchmaking festival) to some of the most romantic wedding locations on the plane.”

Korean Men Tie the Knot In Heartwarming 'My Fair Wedding' Documentary: VIDEO

My Fair Wedding

South Korea, like many places in the world and in too much of the U.S., bans gay marriage. South Korean gays, like in many places in the world and in increasingly more places in the U.S., are reaching the point of not caring what the bans are and are getting married anyways, governmental recognition be damned. Such is the case with Kim Jho Gwang-soo and Kim Seung-hwan, a South Korean gay couple whose marriage became the subject of a documentary by Jang Hee-sun entitled My Fair Wedding. 

The documentary follows the couple along their journey to wedded bliss, from the planning stages to the challenges of telling their families to the ceremony itself in downtown Seoul. Despite the pushback they received from anti-gay protesters, the two felt that this was necessary in order to raise awareness of sexual minorities in South Korea. Said Kim Jho,

Through this film, we would like to show that we are not different from heterosexuals.

Hopefully this will facilitate legislation in South Korea that, like many places in the world and in most of the U.S., legally recognizes same-sex marriage. The film will be released in South Korea on June 6, 2015, and you can watch the trailer AFTER THE JUMP...

Ted Cruz Promises To 'Always, Always, Always' Defend Christians' Right to Discriminate Against Gays: VIDEO

Speaking yesterday at the "Watchmen on the Wall" conference - sponsored by the highly profitable Family Research Council and presided over by head honcho Tony Perkins - Cruz said:

“The modern Democratic Party has become so radical, so extreme, that they have determined that their devotion to mandatory gay marriage in all 50 states trumps any allegiance to religious liberty under the First Amendment."

Lamenting that other GOP presidential hopefuls were silent following opposition to "religious liberty" bills in Indiana and Arkansas, Superbigot Cruz promised the homophobic gathering "I will always, always, always stand and fight for religious liberty of every American!"

Ireland Marriage Equality Referendum Round-up: VIDEO


After months of unpleasantness, questionable debate and outright lies from the No side, the referendum is almost upon us and the media moratorium is in place.

While many in Ireland are wondering what the likes of The Journal will do for content after the weekend, here's a roundup of some of yesterday's stories.



PMPaddy Manning, one of the two anti-equality gay men frequently trotted out by the No side to argue against same-sex marriage, yesterday joined representatives from Mothers and Fathers Matter, The lona [Fake] Institute and First Families First at the final No Campaign press conference in Dublin, followed by a demonstration outside of government buildings.

Along with gay anti-gay activist Keith Mills - who will be too busy attending Eurovision to actually bother to vote - Manning also appeared in a creepy recent Mothers and Fathers Matter video “I’m Gay and I’m Voting No”.




Meanwhile - comedian Steve Bennett has made a response to the infuriating video: “I'm homophobic and I'm voting Yes. Here's why.”

“Some homophobes want to ruin it for everybody by voting No and not allowing us to have a big laugh at gay weddings. I studied homophobia and geography in college and I learned all the words for them…”

Meet Ireland's Heterophobic Cab Driver: VIDEO


Ahead of Ireland's same-sex marriage referendum tomorrow, taxi service Hailo has released a hilarious video that aims to show what gay cab passengers often have to put up with.

In the clip, the Dublin driver takes a phone call from a colleague who complains about a straight couple "holding hands" in the cab. "Jaysus, if I'd knew they were straight before they got in I would have just sailed past them, Deco", he says.

To show just how ridiculous discrimination is, we created a little hidden camera prank… #DriveForEquality

— Hailo Ireland (@HailoIreland) May 19, 2015

The driver explains to a passenger "we don't normally take heteros in the car" although he has nothing against them and even has a straight uncle.

HAILO's #DriveForEquality is offering people free rides to polling centers tomorrow.


It's Cane and Abel, not Jane and Abel.
