well over here in scotland gay rights on equal marriage is continuing as it has, and tommorrow on valentines day a march, from the centre of edinburgh to the scottish parliament for couples is taking place, all various groups in the lgtb, will be represented, and the scottish youth parliament, with the students, and also straights, who support equal marriage rights, will be there.
My daughter is also going, thank god i am not?
On the news the three asians who were handing out leaflets of hate against the lgbt community in england were sentenced, and sent to jail last week.
And on bbc alba, on the programme eorpa, a news current affairs programme for the gaelic community, there was an item which dealt with hate crime against the gay community in turkey, and how in the last year 30,000 gays, lesbians & transgenders were murdered by there own families in honour killings.
Also discussed on this programme with a muslim cleric, was how the perceptions of ordinary muslims viewed the lgtb community with hatred.
And lambda organisation was calling for unity to stop these killings, and a new film about the murder of a gay man, was also talked about.
The film is called zenne dancer.

well on the political front in scotland tommy, legislation could take 3yrs, and i am in for the long run.
on the turkish issue, attention needs to be brought about that situation, because turkey, and other muslim countries, and also russia, over the next few years will want closer ties with europe, and will have to sign equal rights accords to join the EEC.
But even if these goverments sign, the muslim faith will just ignore human rights issues, and continue as before.
What is needed, is economic pressure to be brought to bear on these countries, which abuse lgtb rights, and any other human rights as well.
But then this is also a problem even in the USA, just look at prop 8, and equal marriage legislation in the USA right now.
At least over here we dont have to carry arms around with us, even if some over here wish they could.
