Yes Equality Cork have announced a benefit fundraising club night, aimed at supporting their campaign efforts to secure a YES vote in the forthcoming Marriage Equality referendum.
‘Love, Like’ club night will see Cork’s best DJs perform in support of the Yes Equality Cork campaign, a locally based group who have formed to activate support in favour of the forthcoming referendum on civil marriage equality.
The organising committee for Love, Like revolves around Niamh Walsh and her partner Josephine O’Halloran with their straight friends Colm, Michelle and Sinead. Josephine outlines their motivation for creating this benefit party “We want to get married and our friends want to the come to the wedding, plus we all believe in equality. All of our DJs signed up without any hesitation and in the end, we could have had another 10 DJs such was the level of interest and support from the community!”.
Headlining the club night are duo Greg Dowling and Shane Johnson, FISH GO DEEP, Irelands’ premier House music production duo, who attract a loyal and dedicated crowd wherever they play. In the line-up of Cork talent are renowned performers Stevie G, Tonie Walsh, Colm K, Stevie G, Angi, Misterr Fork, Billy & Gina, Generic People, Colm Motherway, JusMe and Alex Bruce.
Chairperson of Yes Equality Cork, Joe Noonan, said, “We are very grateful to Niamh and Josephine for their passion and enterprise in creating this very special music night in aid of our efforts. We hope to see as many supporters there on the night as possible.”
