Glasgow Commonwealth Games opening ceremony made sure to drawing attention to the nation’s support for gay marriage, with the opening ceremony featuring a gay kiss between actor John Barrowman and a male dancer, to celebrate equality in Scotland.

The kiss was accompanied by shouts of “here’s to equality in Scotland”, and other backing dancers pulling party poppers.

It’s also no surprise, that just seconds after the reference appeared on screen, Twitter erupted.

Campaigners have called for statements in support of LGBT rights, given the number of Commonwealth countries which still currently criminalise homosexuality.
