Scottish celebs back same sex marriage in new video

A new video campaign has been launched urging people to back the introduction of same-sex marriage in Scotland.

"It's Time" features appearances from Scottish celebrities including Brian Cox, Lorraine Kelly, Alan Cumming and The Proclaimers.

The video was was produced for the Equality Network who are campaigning to extend marriage rights to same-sex couples.

The Marriage and Civil Partnership (Scotland) Bill is expected to be introduced to the Scottish Parliament this week.

The bill, which is supported by 88 of Holyrood's 129 MSPs, will end the legal definition of marriage as a union exclusively between a man and a woman.

“We’re incredibly proud of the ‘It’s Time’ video campaign, which demonstrates the breadth of support that exists for equal marriage in Scotland, and reflects the values of equality and compassion that have always been at the heart of our society."

– Tom French, policy co-ordinator for the Equality Network
