Friday’s same-sex marriage referendum is fast approaching and unsurprisingly, the rest of the world have turned their heads in curiosity to see how everything unfolds. Will we legalise same-sex marriage, ensuring equality for all? Will we become the first country in the world to accept same-sex marriage by popular vote? Or will the arguments put forward by No voters tilt the scales? Like never before, we wait with bated breath.

In rather heartwarming news, the now famous #VoteYes mural just off Dublin’s Dame Street has just made the front cover of The International New York Times. No mean feat for artist Joe Caslin, and something to be proud of no matter the outcome. The headline read ‘Quietly, Irish take up same-sex marriage’.

Caslin took to his Instagram profile to share the news of where his work had landed.

Today the drawing that was installed on South Great George’s Street made the front page of the International New York Times.

Cementing his position as a socio-political artist that we’re only dying to share a pint with, Joe Caslin also took his efforts to Galway, where he in installed another same sex mural on the side of a castle. The stunning mural of two women embracing is said to have been inspired by Frederic William Burton’s painting The Meeting on the Turret Stairs. Speaking to The Irish Times, Caslin said: ?The images that I wanted to show are things that are dignified… To show love, that’s essentially what it is, the equality that people should have no matter what sort of a relationship they’re in.? Whatever you do this Friday, make sure you get out and vote. I installed this same sex dual portrait on a fifteenth century castle in the west of Ireland over the weekend.
