Ireland Votes Yes

Thank you to the citizens of Ireland for approving a referendum to explicitly state in the country's constitution that marriage is recognized irrespective of the sex of the partners.  (Read the Wiki page here.)

Before the vote in the Republic of Ireland, I didn't think it was possible for a the rights of a minority (homos) to be approved by the majority (heteros); it's difficult for a minority to win a majority of any election without supporters.  This gives me much hope for the future of gay people all over the world.

I celebrate the people of Ireland!  This BuzzFeed article makes me so joyful, here.
