This badge is part of a series of badges created and distributed by 'Marriage Equality' in the run-up to the 2015 same-sex marriage referendum that took place in Ireland (22 May 2015).
It represents years of campaigning, protest, and lobbying by many organisations and individuals. The results on 23 May 2015 represented a watershed moment in Irish history as the rights to same-sex marriage were won by 62% to 28%.
