W3JOY- Jerry Buttimer, Irish TD by W3JOY published on 2013-02-25T23:29:11Z "Ireland is a good place to be gay now," proclaims Jerry Buttimer. Mr Buttimer is the first openly gay TD from the Fine Gael party in Ireland. W3JOY interviewed him about the upcoming constitutional convention regarding same-sex marriage. "Same-sex marriage is not just a human right, but it's an entitlement of all citizens." He is excited about the Constitutional convention, but still concerned, " The biggest fear that I have is, despite the changes we've made in the context of civil partnership, is that it will fall short in a referendum."
