This week was Rainbow Week at UCD, which means a number of events were organised to raise awareness about issues that LGBT (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender) people have to deal with, and promote acceptance, and protest about the fact that these people do not have equal rights (compared to other people) by law.
To protest against the law which illegalises same-sex marriages in Ireland, the LGBT society organised a Pride March, which means we all walked from the Student Centre towards the UCD lake with rainbow flags, shouting “What do we want? Equal rights! When do we want it? Now!” and then held 3 mock gay weddings. This means we went through a little ceremony where three same-sex couples were “married”. It was a lot of fun, see the pictures and video below :)
