Remarking on Ireland's historic vote to legalize same-sex marriage, BuzzFeed News' J. Lester Feder writes, "[b]efore Ireland . . . the goal of changing a nation’s mind about LGBT rights seemed daunting if not impossible. After Ireland, it seems like it may just be a matter of time even in countries where public support for LGBT equality remains very low and where powerful religious institutions are vocally opposed." The Ireland vote "gives a profound send of new confidence" to LGBT activists across the globe.
