David Norris, Hero of Gay Marriage Vote: ‘At 71, With a Liver Transplant, I’m Too Old to Wed’

After helping to win a globally unique battle for gay marriage equality last weekend, Senator David Norris was basking in glory after being hailed as a key architect of Ireland’s momentous referendum vote to allow same-sex marriages under the constitution. Just days later, he is rueful as he reflects that he is too old and a little bit too choosy to tie the knot at his age. Norris said,“I am being realistic. I don’t think there is going to be a queue for the hand of a 71-year-old man with a liver transplant."
