SENATOR David Norris paid a whistle-stop visit to Wexford where he spoke at the town library on 'The Road to Equality', his visit coinciding with an exhibition of the same name.

Both the very well attended talk and the exhibition reflected on the historic journey to the 'Yes' vote in the 2015 marriage referendum.

In May 2015, Ireland became the first country in the world to introduce marriage equality by public vote.

'The Road to Equality 'exhibition, organised by National LGBT Federation, in partnership with Dialogue and Diversity, remembers and celebrates the 40 years of LGBT activism that have brought us to this moment.

In addition to his speaking date, Senator Norris signed copies of his book for the appreciative and enthusiastic crowd.
