Stonewall Scotland welcomes the publication of the draft Equal Marriage Bill

Today the Scottish Government published the draft Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill. Colin Macfarlane, Director of Stonewall Scotland, reacted by saying:

‘We are delighted that the Scottish Government has now published its draft bill on equal marriage. The very fact that such a bill is now being considered is proof that the vast majority of Scots support moves to ensure lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people are afforded the same rights as everyone else. We look forward to examining the details of the bill and we will work with the Scottish Government and all our MSPs to ensure that this truly delivers equal rights for lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Scots’.


We encourage all of our supporters to look at the bill and respond to the consultation.
