Musicians across the world are celebrating Ireland’s decision to legalize gay marriage.
Analysts estimated that more than 60 percent of Irish voters said “yes” to amending the constitution in favor of gay marriage on Saturday (May 23), the Associated Press reports.
So happy Ireland have passed the law to get married there. Still genuinely shocks me thou, that this is only just happening!!
