Ireland’s John and Edward Grimes, or Jedward to you and me, have been rul, rul busy lately. But in between their music and film (they’re going to be in Sharknado 3!) careers, they found some time today to visit Facebook Dublin and help launch the ‘Stay Safe on Facebook’ campaign in association with The Diana Awards.

The Eurovision 2011 and 2012 stars were joined by a number of other big-names, including ex-Girls Aloud singer Nadine Coyle and YouTuber Marcus Butler, and of course lots of media. Now as we’ve previously reported, the 22 May Marriage Referendum is a big deal at the moment in Ireland. A number of high profile names including Eurovision stars such as Molly Sterling and Dustin the Turkey have already come out in support of “Yes” vote, which would enable same-sex couples to marry. Unsurprisingly, especially given the nature of the event, the twins were asked for their views on the matter.

I feel like it’s a massive moment. It is acceptable now. People should vote Yes because there’s no big deal. People make a big deal out of it, but the answer should be Yes.
Edward added that:
The answer should be Yes because everyone deserves equality
