Ireland’s Absolutely Beautiful Gay Marriage PSA

Maine may have its gay marriage television spots, but it’s Ireland’s that are really catching on. “Sinead’s Hand,” from the group MarriagEquality and featuring native actor Hugh O’Connor, has been seen more than 130,000 times since debuting at the Dublin Gay and Lesbian Film Festival (GAZE). And it comes at a perfect time: The Irish parliament will decide if, after decriminalizing homosexuality in 1993, this year is the time for civil partnerships for gays and lesbians in a land where marriage is reserved for heteros.
