A second reading has taken place on the Isle of Man to legalise a same sex marriage Bill.
Chief Minister Allan Bell spoke in the House of Keys yesterday to outline why the island's government, Tynwald, should vote in favour of the legislation.
MHKs who opposed the Bill included Eddie Teare, John Houghton, Zac Hall and Chris Robertshaw.
Numerous online petitions in favour of the Bill have been shared on social media via change.org.
