URGENT: Less than 6 hours to respond to Scottish Government’s Equal Marriage consultation

We need your help to deliver another Lib Dem win in the Scottish Parliament. We’re on a tight deadline – we need you to act before 5 pm today.

The Liberal Democrats were the first party to support gay rights in a General Election manifesto. For decades, we’ve always been there for equality. The Scottish Liberal Democrats led on equal marriage, before the Federal Party became the first major national party to support the policy.

The Scottish Government are consulting on the details of implementing equal marriage, for a Bill later this year. You can help ensure that the Bill is liberal, well thought out and promotes equality and freedom.

To find out more and respond, simply visit here. The Westminster Bill is progress, but not everything the Liberal Democrats
called for. While our Westminster Parliamentarians seek to improve it, Scotland can and should do better. Please spend a few minutes responding to the consultation – you don’t need to answer all the questions!

LGBT+ Lib Dems is the party body for gender and sexual minorities including lesbian, gay, bi and trans (LGBT) people. We develop policy, help local parties engage with their LGBT+ communities, and support LGBT+ candidates
standing for election at all levels. If you’d like to get more involved in campaigning and activities in Scotland, please email [email protected]

* Adrian Hyyrylainen-Trett is the Liberal Democrat Parliamentary Candidate for Ipswich and Chair of Liberal International British Group (LIBG).
