The Hot Press Newsdesk, 17 Sep 2012
Bank Holiday Sunday October 28 is set to bring a host of top Irish talent together in aid of a very good cause as Just Love: The Gig For Marriage Equality takes place at the Round Room of Dublin's Mansion House.
The benefit gig aims to raise both funds and awareness in support of civil marriage rights for same sex couples. Among the acts set to perform include Heathers, Royseven, Bitches With Wolves, Brian Kennedy, This Club and Element.
"I am a supporter of Marriage Equality, because the clue is in the title," says Brian Kennedy. "Civil partnership is anything but equal and a loving couple, be it two women or two men, deserve the right to marry if they wish. It's a basic human right as far as I'm concerned."
James O'Neill of Bitches With Wolves has also thrown his support behind the campaign.
"As a proudly gay man, Marriage Equality and equal rights for all are two causes that I hold very deep", he said. "I am over the moon to be able to do my part to help sch a worthy cause and look forward to whipping up a storm at the Mansion House."
Tickets priced €35 are onsale now via Ticketmaster and usual outlets.
