Ireland: Independent Gay Senator Leads Polls for Presidency

Pink News reports:

Gay independent senator David Norris in in the lead for the Irish presidency, a poll of the public says.

According to an Ipsos MRBI/Irish Times poll of 1,000 people, Mr Norris has 25 per cent of the vote.

Fine Gael candidate Gay Mitchell was on 21 per cent and Labour’s Michael D Higgins was on 18 per cent.

So it would seem that the rest of the world is moving on, and the U.S., sadly, is stuck in the 1950s.

Lived in NYC for almost a decade until meeting my husband, who because of the f'ed up immigration laws, can't stay in the US. I'm obsessed with politics and LGBT activism. I cannot stand or abide ANY form of religious stupidity or bigotry....oh, or republicans.
