As the Scottish Government finally publishes its Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill to introduce equal marriage, Stonewall Scotland has urged all MSPs to support the Bill.
A YouGov poll for Stonewall Scotland’s Living Together report last year showed a clear majority of people in Scotland support equal marriage with two thirds of people in favour of the Government’s proposals. Stonewall Scotland’s campaign website at www.stonewallscotland.org.uk/marriage gives supporters a range of resources to help them campaign for marriage equality.
Colin Macfarlane, Director of Stonewall Scotland, said: ‘Many thousands of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender Scots, their friends and their families will be delighted that the Scottish Government has finally introduced its Bill. The Scottish Parliament can now get on with making marriage equality in Scotland a reality. We know that the thousands of individual supporters who make Stonewall Scotland’s campaigning possible will now be looking to their MSPs to show their commitment to equality by voting for equal marriage’
