Testament of Youth

In 2015 it was a massive upsurge in the youth vote that swung it for marriage equality, the irst movement of its kind in the country. But will the youth vote be as instrumental in the referendum to repeal the eighth? We get the word from members of BeLonG To’s LGBT+ youth groups.


I’m a transgender male. Technically speaking, I can get pregnant quite easily, and if I were to get pregnant, I would not be able to deal with that mentally.

I was having a discussion about this in class recently and somebody was saying people should vote No. I asked why and he was like, ‘Babies will die’. I said if I were to get pregnant, I would die. He was kind of shocked by that, but he was still like, ‘Well, that’s your opinion’. I said that’s not my opinion, that’s my mental health.

A lot of the Yes posters are great, but there’s some of them that are very cisnormative: ‘vote for women, vote for women’s healthcare’. I know it’s mainly for cis women, but there are still trans people out there who can get pregnant.

About GCN

We’re out in the nick of time with our special Repeal issue, featuring an iconic photo by Katie Donohoe, taken the fateful day Maser’s repeal mural on the wall of The Project was painted over. Inside we reveal the results of our survey on the queer referendum vote, ask LGBT’s about the issues involved and speak to Anna Cosgrave, the creator of the Repeal Project. We meet the powerhouse protest group Radical Queers Resist and the writer and director behind ‘A Day In May’, a major stage production celebrating the 2015 marriage equality referendum victory. It’s a choc-a-bloc issue with a queer activism heart. Read it now!
