Moves to legalise gay marriage in the Island

The Manx Rainbow Assocation says the possible legalisation of gay marriage has been a long time coming - but marks the beginning of the end of institutional discriminisation.

At the end of last week, Chief Minister Allan Bell revealed the government would consult on new laws before bringing them in before next year's general election.

Lee Vorster from the Manx Rainbow Association says it shows the Isle of Man isn't the backward and homophobic place it's sometimes portrayed as.

And he predicts there'll be an immediate demand for weddings.
