Proud

It is sods law that while Ayrshire basked in sunshine, Edinburgh froze in that soaking east coast mist and drizzle. Neither that nor the very inadequate PA system depressed the crowd, which had come out to spread happiness and did. Pace shmeekins, the dress code was pakamacs. (Any celebs steered well clear of me)

We were there to support Kelvin, who was speaking about the white knot who promote marriage equality. He pitched it just right, I thought, with calm authority but open and cheerful – he is of course a naturally good speaker. He got a good cheer and marched with the nobs – well the politicians, anyhow. I watched him standing there and thought what an excellent thing it is to look and think, yes, the right man in the right job at the right time, doing the right thing.

The crowd were great with the dog collars (Kelvin and Kimberly) – sometimes acknowledging them but not making any great deal of it. Tell you what, though, mostly a very soberly dressed lot. Maybe the rain?
