Look at these two handsome young men. They show that gays are all about love. Gays will conquer all political divides and it is for this reason that today, Act of Gay celebrates Irish people from both sides of the border. What brought Ireland and Northern Ireland into the lamp light of Act of Gay, we hear you asking. Two majorly very cool things.
Northern Ireland, a country steeped in religious tradition, lit up the town hall of their capital city, Belfast, with rainbow colors!

Then, the Lord Mayor Mairtin O Muilleoir led the Gay Pride parade.
Northern Ireland are proving to the world that they are leaders in the quest for equality for all of their citizens. Top politicians from the country even formed a panel to answer questions presented by the LGBT community.
South of the border in Ireland, a gay rights hero has emerged of a different and faceless ilk. All hail Paddy Hack! Our favorite, mysterious modern day superheroes, Anonymous and it’s merry band of hackers were represented by Paddy Hack in an attack on Nigeria and its anti gay bill, looking to criminalize gay marriage and participation in gay social events with terrible penalties.
Today the Nigerian government woke up to this message on their website along with a demand for the President to renounce and veto the bill.
“Failure to follow our order will unleash a torrent of fury aimed directly at the direction of your administration, starting with some startling but unsurprising evidence of corruption in your ranks,” the message continued.
He added: “No need to start destroying evidence. I already have it.”

Act of Gay is now going to make its pronouncements. First, we’d like to suggest that Act of Gay, in recognition of Belfast’s beautiful behavior, should get some beautiful weather. Weather forecaster, recognizing the benevolency of Act of Gay, announced today,
“In Belfast it will be around 26C, so a very warm day with prolonged sunny spells. The good weather will last right through the week with temperatures in the mid-20s. Every day should reach about 25C or 26C at least.”

You’re welcome Belfast.
But, because Belfast has been so extra good to their gays, we thought that Act of Gay had to do something in recognition of gayness, not just across the world, but across the spectrum of species.
Which animal do we know form loving, long term, monogamous, gay relationships? Penguins of course! So, Act of Gay is beyond excited to announce that Belfast Zoo have had the wonderful and clearly, miraculous, arrival of six new penguin chicks. These chicks are born with a purpose – and that is to help with the conservation of their species. But we’re relieved to know that they were born in Northern Ireland and that even if they are LGBT penguins, they will be loved equally.

Just to make sure no one thinks Act of Gay is speciesist in any way, we care about the humans too. Jobs for Belfast. Act of Gay says they are heading your way. Beannchor group is investing a heap of money into Belfast and will create 50 new jobs for humans by the autumn!
Due to Paddy Hack, we felt that it was important to share the great weather with Ireland. So today is the hottest day of the year so far. Ireland has some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, but it isn’t often blessed with the sort of fantastic weather that Act of Gay is able to announce today. So, Ireland, get to the beach and thank Paddy Hack for the sunshine!

Act of Gay would also like to congratulate Ireland on their stupendous performance in the World Cricket League Game against the Netherlands, taking them one step closer to qualifying for the World Cup in Australia – which is another country that Act of Gay loves.
Inspired by tales of fit men with large, hard wooden sticks and balls of steel, we leave you with this timely and gratuitous image of James Anderson, a friend of all gay cricketers.
“If there are any gay cricketers, they should feel confident enough to come out, because I don’t think there is homophobia in cricket.” – James Anderson.
