Victory: Scotland Legalized Marriage Equality!

Written by 

scotland Glasgow


A big hand for all the LGBT's in Scotland! The bill allowing same-sex marriage was approved by the Scottish Parliament!

It is by a 105-18 vote that the members of the Scotland's Parliament approved the Marriage and Civil Partnership Bill.

A few weeks ago, already, an amendment allowing people not to celebrate a marriage between same-sex people, refusal based on their religious belief, had been rejected by the Parliament. A compromise was found. The BBC reports that the SNP's John Mason tabled an amendment stating that no-one could be "compelled by any means" to solemnise gay marriage, including by a contract or a legal requirement.

A consultation had been also organized online by the government to know the opinion of the Scottish population and also the Scotland's image abroad if it legalized marriage equality, inviting any person to share his/her opinion. Perhaps you are also part, as the team of Lezbelib, of the 77,508 people who contributed to it and who now enjoy this new victory for our community!
