This Gigantic Mural Is Promoting Marriage Equality In Ireland
Public art + marriage equality = win!
Irish street artist Joe Caslin has produced an enormous mural promoting marriage equality, ahead of Ireland's May 22 referendum on the issue.
The mural, situated above Rick's Burgers in Dublin, depicts a gay couple affectionately holding one another.
Caslin worked overnight to complete the four-storey high mural on Saturday morning.
He told The Journal he would continue advocating for marriage equality via art, with a mural of a lesbian couple to come next.
However, he is eager to find an "urban canvas" outside of Dublin. "[It's] not just a referendum for the capital," he said.
The artwork has been warmly received, with much support posted on social media.
"The public reaction to this drawing has been unbelievable," Caslin wrote on Instagram.
