Huzzah for the 17th* country in the world to legalise same-sex marriage!

Today, 105 MSPs voted in favour of same-sex marriage, to only 18 against.

This makes me very happy.

The legislation is not quite the same as in England/Wales - in particular I understand that it's better for transgender people.

If you click here and go to the seven-minute mark you can see the wonder Lizzie and Ari, who not only look awesome in the photos from their wedding**, but manage to get in a couple of sensible points in the 30 seconds of air-time they got.



*Ish. It seems to depend on how you count it. But I've heard the number seventeen used on several occasions recently.
**It was an amazing wedding. Defrocked priest and all. It makes me happy just remembering it.
