Scots LGBT Forced into Marriage

Gay people and people with disabilities were among those being forced into marriage over the last year, according to new figures.
A helpline has received 75 calls since new laws on forced marriage were enacted in Scotland in November last year.
More than 5% of the calls to the Scottish Domestic Abuse and Forced Marriage line concerned people being pressured into marriage because they have a physical or learning disability or because of their sexuality, officials revealed.
In addition, the UK Forced Marriage Unit has dealt with a further 66 instances of forced marriage across the UK involving those with disabilities.
