We welcome questions on any matters to do with LGBT equality in Scotland. If you have a question, please check here to see if it has already been asked and answered (questions and answers are listed in reverse order by date). If not, please contact us.

Please note:

  • the information available here represents our understanding of the situation as presented in the questions, but none of us at the Equality Network are lawyers, and we strongly recommend you consult a solicitor before taking any significant decision relating to the law described here.
  • the answers may go out of date as legislation changes: where we are aware of this, we have indicated it with an update notice in the text of the answer, but we must ask you to bear in mind that a question which was asked some time ago may have an answer which was correct then but is invalid now.
  • we do not and cannot offer advice: we can only let you know what our understanding of the law is.
