About 200 people lobbied the Scottish Parliament in support of equal marriage on Wednesday of last week. 

MSPs from across the political spectrum supported the demonstration. Tasha Boardman from BLOGS, the Edinburgh University LGBT Society, said, “Students can’t understand why there would be a ban on equal marriage.” 

People chanted, “Black, white, gay, straight—love does not discriminate”. 

The legislation passed its first stage later that day.
