Madeleine writes:

The majority said one simple word; for a minority that word meant everything. YES captures the excitement, drama and humour of the marriage equality campaign whilst also looking under the surface of what that vote meant.

YES follows four very different campaigners as they share their personal story. Peter, a veteran gay activist; Gina, a straight woman campaigning for her gay son; Laura, a lesbian in a committed relationship; and Josh, a gay student from the country not out to his family.

Hot Press writes:

“To mark the occasion and to reflect the huge importance of the Marriage Equality Referendum, this fortnight, Hot Press features two separate covers, featuring male and female same sex couples kissing. The couples – Steph and Megan and Dean and Martin – were photographed sharing an intimate kiss with their same sex partners by Kathrin Baumbach specially for this issue’s cover. Hot Press has always campaigned vocally on the issue of gay rights and equality, and the striking images make a clear statement about the value and integrity of same sex love, ahead of polling day on May 22.”

“I have thought a lot about this. I am going to vote Yes in recognition of the gay community as full members of society. They should have an entitlement to marry. It is a civil right and a human right.”
