Today is a proud day for Scotland
Yesterday the Scottish Government put Scotland on the road to being one of the most progressive countries in the world when it comes to lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender (LGBT) equality.

If you have not yet heard the news, the Scottish Government announced today that they will be bringing forward legislation to lift the ban on same-sex marriage in Scotland.

They have gone further than the Westminister government proposes - allowing both civil and religious & humanist marriage in Scotland (for those religions that wish to conduct same-sex marriages). This is the most progressive option, allowing for equality and religious freedom.

We also welcome that under the proposals transgender people will no longer be forced to divorce in order to have their gender legally recognised. Opening up marriage to all, regardless of gender, is a sign that Scotland promotes equality for all LGBT people.

I am aware that Black Kilt Tours refers to a predominately male form of dress and the logo on the website is of me in a kilt, but It is good to see women contibute to this site.

The LGBT community should be the one place where doubly marginised women feel included. I am pleased that I am taking two lesbians on a tour of Scotland next week and will get a female perpective on their impressions of Scotland.

If needs be, I'll create a specifically female page on the website showing the best lesbian friendly venues. I'll let you know how it goes. You can also help; if you know of any specifically lesbian friendly places to stay or bars in Scotland let me know.

Just be aware when researching your family tree that not everyone was born in a castle in the home country and don't leave it too late.
