A straight couple and their son barricade themselves in their home to keep the effects of marriage equality from seeping into their lives in a new PSA from Ireland.

In Armagayddon, an Irish married couple are devastated after passage of a law allowing gay and lesbian couples to marry in Ireland.

“Oh, God, John, they're going to get in,” a grief-stricken Mary sobs as her husband attends to their barricaded front door. “They're going to get in!”

In an interview, the pair explain the tragedy that pushed them into isolation.

“Back in 2015, Ireland had a referendum on marriage equality. Sure, we weren't one bit worried,” John says.

“We thought at best, it'd be close,” Mary says.

“As far as we knew, there was maybe five or six gays operating in Ireland at that time,” John says. “But it was their friends. Normal people they ...”

“They marched. They voted. Lots of them. They said things like, 'People should be able to love who ever they want,' even though they could do that already. There was nothing in it for them at all.”

After the vote, everything changed, John states.

“So much equality,” a fearful Mary adds. “Ireland was practically unrecognizable.”

“We tried to blend in, but the weddings were unbelievable.”

“And the cakes,” says Mary. “Amazing.”

“It was at that point it became a question of survival,” John explains.

The mocking PSA to promote Sunday's LGBT Noise March in Dublin ends with, “Marriage equality: It's not the end of the world, lads.” (The video is embedded on this page. Visit our video library for more videos.)
