This is rather special.

With just under six weeks to go until the marriage equality referendum takes place in Ireland, it is a subject that everyone is talking about.

Last night, Irish artist Joe Caslin created an amazing piece of art in Dublin city.

If you want to see it for yourself, the mural is located on the side of the Mercantile building where Dame and South Great George’s Street meet.

Describing it as a “poignant representation of same sex love in the city”, Joe is also planning to create a similar portrait featuring two women.

Although the mural is only in Dublin one day, it has received a huge reaction with many expressing their feelings via social media.

Talented artist Joe, who also works as a teacher, recently spoke to our bros about why he got involved in street art and it is well worth a read.
