In Scotland, the youth parliament launched a Love Equally campaign.

They ask the government to allow gay and lesbian couples to marry and the civil unions which are not possible in Scotland despite the support of the population which is favorable to the gay marriage with 62%.Scotland’s youth parliament chair Grant Costello said:

"The core purpose of the Scottish youth parliament is to involve young people in deciding the future of Scotland.

The young people of Scotland have told us that two people who love each other should be able to get married and it is now up to us to lobby the government and ask politicians to listen to them and make their voice heard.

By getting young people to be the messengers, we hope to explain the difference between civil partnerships and marriage via a series of local and national campaign activities. Our message to Scotland is that all laws regarding homosexual relationships, whether male or female, should be equal to those of heterosexual relationships."
