Scottish Parliament Acknowledges Marvel’s Same-Sex Wedding

In stark contrast to bigots here in the United States, Scottish Labour Party member representing West Scotland Mary Fee filed the following motion which is supported by eight other members:

That the Parliament welcomes the news that the Marvel comic, X-Men, will feature its first same-sex marriage, which will feature Northstar, believed to be the first openly gay comic superhero; understands that, in 1992, Marvel was the first comic publisher to reveal a gay superhero; notes that Northstar is not the first gay character to have had a same-sex marriage in the comic book world, and agrees that same-sex marriage should not be restricted to the world of literature and fantasy.

Great to see the progressive efforts of comic book companies being acknowledged and that equality is being championed.
