It’s been great news for gay and lesbian marriage around the world this year, and now we have historic news coming out of the UK. Yesterday, Scotland became the first part of the United Kingdom to draft legislation for marriage equality. The “Marriage and Civil Partnership Bill” would allow full equality for gay couples. According to GSN: “The Scottish government will now be consulting on the implementation of the draft bill, including the details of the legislation and proposals relating to religious bodies and celebrants, freedom of speech, education and employment. Following the close of the public consultation on 20 March, the Scottish government will make any changes to the bill that are considered necessary, then introduce the bill for a vote into the Scottish parliament. It generally takes at least 6 months for a bill to go through parliament, so if the bill is introduced by May or June, it might be passed by around the end of 2013.”
