We are an independent group of psychologists in Ireland. Same-sex preference is part of the spectrum of human sexuality and is in no way abnormal or pathological.
Same-sex couples are similar to heterosexual couples, in many regards.
All of the available research shows that children of same-sex couples are similar to children of heterosexual couples. Inequality and discrimination, however, are damaging to mental health.
It is for these reasons that we intend to vote ‘yes’ in the marriage referendum.
