Queer aye by straight guy

The Star Early Edition - - TONIGHT TELEVISION -

COLIN Far­rell is cam­paign­ing for gay mar­riage rights in Ire­land.

The ac­tor is sup­port­ing a “yes” vote in his na­tive coun­try be­cause he be­lieves in equal rights for the LGBT com­mu­nity and was dis­mayed when his openly gay brother Ea­mon had to go to Canada to legally marry his part­ner.

Writ­ing in the Sun­day World, he re­vealed: “The fact that my brother had to leave Ire­land to have his dream of be­ing mar­ried be­come real is in­sane.

“That’s why this is per­sonal to me. It’s time to right the scales of jus­tice here. To sign up and reg­is­ter to vote next year so that each in­di­vid­ual’s voice can be heard.”
