Letters to the Editor

It is with a heavy heart that I write this letter, because today my life will either be changed for the better or my future in this country will be shortened. May 22 could be the day that I recall with good memories or it could be the day that confirms my inequality in this country.

I am a daughter, a sister, a friend, a teacher, a sportswoman, a Sagittarius and underneath all of that I am a lesbian. I have known for many years about my sexual orientation, but I have kept it hidden because I have witnessed and experienced horrific bullying just because of who I happen to love.

I honestly believe that the passing of this referendum in favour of same-sex marriage will help to end the stigma associated with the LGBT community and lessen the prejudice that occurs every day.
