An equal marriage video guaranteed to make you smile

It is a very long time since I have felt this good on a Monday morning. I am full of happiness, joy and smiles. Why? Believe it or not, it’s all down to 3 minutes and 28 seconds of  feelgood video from Scotland’s bright and positive Equal Marriage campaign.  Set to the song Pride by Amy MacDonald, it takes in Broadway,  the Coronation Street set, Lorraine Kelly’s dressing room and, most importantly, real places and real couples across Scotland. All Scottish political party leaders feature too. There is a slight irony in that the slogan “It’s Time” was used by the SNP in their winning Holyrood election campaign in 2007 but we’ll put that to one side for the moment.

The video has been released to celebrate 5 years of the equal marriage campaign and to mark the SNP Government introducing its own equal marriage bill later this week. Watch and enjoy. You will be glad you did. For me, it’s very much move over Idina Menzel and West Wing videos, I have a new You Tube favourite.

And if you want some more information, here’s a “behind the scenes” blog from the people who made the film Production Attic.

  • An excellent video; quite moving too. Thanks for putting it on LDV. As a churchgoing Anglican LibDem heterosexual, I support equal marriage 100%.

  • Great video, and of course I knew that Doctor Who would back equal marriage!
