If you haven't replied to the consultation on Scotland's same sex marriage bill, DO IT NOW!

At almost the 11th hour, I have submitted my views to the Scottish Parliament's Equalities Committee which will be considering Scotland's Marriage and Civil Partnership Bill.

The deadline is today, so you really need to get on with it. The "other side" will make sure that they get their point of view across so it's really important that the Committee hears from those in support.

It really won't take you long to complete the forms. I had a lot of help (and credited it so on my submission) from what LGBT+ Liberal Democrats had to say. I pretty much copied verbatim what they said on transgender people and the spousal veto. I am really grateful to Dave Page and everyone else from the organisation who helped pull this together.

If you live in Scotland and you want to have your say, you can answer as many or as few of the questions as you want, just by filling in this form here.

The Equality Network, whose brilliant Equal Marriage campaign, have also submitted their views which may inspire you.

And while we're on the subject, you probably need to be made to smile. It is Friday after all. I've shown the Equal Marriage Campaign's beautiful video, It's Time before - but this is something you really can't watch too often. Enjoy.
