Irish Actor Pierce Brosnan
In an interview with Details men’s magazine, Pierce Brosnan has stated his support for a possible future gay James Bond, and his support for a black Bond, possibly black actor, Idris Elba.
When asked if he ‘saw legalised gay marriage coming’ in Ireland, 62- year-old Brosnan replied:
I never thought in a million years, but hallelujah! Enough of the shaming. It’s a great indication of the forward-thinking of a nation that’s been so mangled by religion.

Stephen Donnan writes about the need for the political parties to work together in Northern Ireland to achieve the goal of marriage equality
First off let me just state that I don’t believe that being politically active or involved in a political party is a bad thing at all – I have been at times a member of a political party, and indeed I was the first Chair of the Alliance Party’s LGBT Committee – something I am immensely proud to have been able to do.
