Out Irish musician SOAK penned a piece about this week’s referendum and equality in Ireland for NME.

Ireland is an extremely religious place, but religion and Ireland hasn’t been the best friendship for people who live there – especially the LGBT community. It’s a hard enough situation already for gay young people. I came out at a young age and it was never an issue for me. I was really lucky that both of my parents are very accepting and supportive. But I have friends who have been kicked out of their homes and faced general non-acceptance. It happens all the time. Imagine how it must feel for a young person who’s already going through a tough time, then on top of that to be told “oh, your government is going to potentially bring in laws that protect and encourage the people that discriminate against you.” It’s crazy.
