Is 2015 the year you’re going to get out there and meet other bi folk at last? There are lots of bi meetups going on around the country this week!
Last year Luxembourg became the ninth EU country to legalise same-sex marriage – and today the law came into effect.
Jean Paul Olinger and Henri Lorenzo Huber were the first same-sex couple to take advantage of the law, with Differdange town hall opening for the ceremony despite the New Year’s Day bank holiday.
The bill passed by a landslide last summer – with 56 votes in favour and 4 against. Luxembourg has an openly gay Prime Minister, the Liberal Xavier Bettel, and also an out-gay Deputy Prime Minister, Socialist party leader Etienne Schneider.
The first day of same-sex weddings in Scotland saw 34 people get hitched today. On the stroke of midnight the first two ceremonies were conducted in Glasgow – Joe Schofield and Malcolm Brown in a humanist ceremony, and Susan and Gerrie Douglas-Scott in a civil ceremony. Members of the Scottish Parliament were in attendance at both weddings – First Minister Nicola Sturgeon as witness to the wedding of Susan and Gerrie.
The year’s biggest bi event, BiCon has run every year since 1984, and the dates for the 2015 conference were announced earlier today.
