Love is the Law: Nathalie Weadick & Carla Killeen

I proposed to Nathalie about 2 weeks after we first met, I knew straight away she was the one for me. I know she thought I was a bit bonkers but eventually came to round to my way of thinking. I think a winter ceremony in Wicklow would be nice.

The fact that they now knew their daughter was gay forced them to open their mind. It didn’t take them long to see that there was no difference and that my relationship with Etain was just as loving and normal as those of my sisters who were straight.

Walking into Martcade in Rathmines, we’re greeted by a hallway of jam jars filled with tea lights. We pass through an open kitchen area, where Jette Virdi, food stylist and the key thinker behind The Creatives, is working behind a four hob gas oven to cook a meal for the 18 gathered guests at an intimate supper in aid of Marriage Equality. Her signature red bandana holds back her hair while she caramelises the blood oranges for the starter that will kick off our six-course meal for equality.

Music Interview: Áine & Andy from Record Store Gay

An all-day, all-welcome festival of music and art complete with a limited edition tie-in record featuring a slew of Irish acts covering their favourite ‘gay anthems’, Record Store Gay is invariably an unmissable event benefiting a great cause. We had the pleasure of sitting down with Áine Beamish and Andy Walsh, the brains behind the operation, to talk about the importance of the day, tackling stereotypes and what to expect on Saturday 18th April.
