Scotland will see in the new year by saying I DO!

Monday, October 13, 2014 - 13:45

The Scottish Government has just announced the date for the first same-sex marriage ceremonies in Scotland: 31 December 2014!

The first same-sex weddings will take place on Hogmanay, meaning that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people in Scotland will have all the more reason to celebrate, when we bring in the new year as a fairer and more equal country.

In February, following Equality Networks six-year long Equal Marriage campaign, the Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Act 2014 was passed by the Scottish Parliament with an overwhelming majority of 105 votes to 18. In March it received Royal Assent, and since then the Scottish Government has been working on the detail and the necessary secondary legislation required to bring the new law into force.

Check out the fabulous Equality Networks website for more inforamtion and on how to get married in Scotland.
