Scottish Singer Melanie MassonScottish singer Melanie Masson, who recently appeared in the British version of the X-Factor, is speaking out for marriage equality.

Pink News reports:

The Scottish singer, of Glasgow, who was a contestant in series 9 of the X Factor back in 2012, spoke out at the Daily record Our Heroes award. Speaking backstage at the awards the she explains “I support equal marriage because I think in 2013 two people in love should be allowed to be together – to legally wed if they choose to, regardless of sex.” She adds, “If Scotland passes the equal marriage law I would be so proud. It’s something that I feel very passionate about, because the idea of two people in love not being allowed to be recognised, from a love point of view and also from a legal point of view, is appalling.”

Scotland recently announced that it was going to fast-track the marriage equality bill – which means it won’t be ready for the Royal Assent until next March. How long would it have taken if they didn’t fast-track it?
