Big-ups and a big congrats to Scotland who became the 17th country to approve same-sex marriage yesterday! Very exciting news.
“Today will be remembered in history as the day that lesbian, gay and bisexual people were finally granted full legal equality in Scotland, and given an equal right to marry the person they love,” said Tom French, Policy Coordinator for the Equality Network, a Scottish LGBT advocacy group.
“This is a profoundly emotional moment for many people who grew up in a country where being gay was still a criminal offense until 1980. Scotland can be proud that we now have one of the most progressive equal marriage bills in the world, and that we’ve sent out a strong message about the kind of country we are,” said French.
Now that I think about it, the kilt was kind of made for the gay wedding!
