Yes voters celebrate in Dublin Castle Square as the country overwhelmingly voted in favour of same-sex marriage

A documentary that tells of the journey towards marriage equality in the Republic of Ireland is now available to stream on Netflix.

Through revealing interviews and archive material, The 34th sees former board members and staff outline the strategising, fierce battles, sheer hard graft and personal cost of running such an all-consuming campaign.

 

From the Katherine Zappone and Ann Louise Gilligan case to a YES vote on May 22 2015, the documentary spans a decade culminating in the 34th amendment to the Irish constitution, allowing same sex marriage.

The film opened at the 25th GAZE International LGBT Film Festival, where it was highlighted by the panel as the film that best embodied the spirit of the festival and honoured with the 'Spirit of Gaze Award' along with the 'Audience Award'.
