Glasgow Commonwealth Games opening ceremony wasted no time in drawing attention to the nation’s support for gay marriage.
It took just three minutes for a shot of a Gretna Green sign to come on screen, with James Barrowman kissing a man and turning to run down an aisle with showers of confetti.
It’s also no surprise, that just seconds after the reference appeared on screen, Twitter erupted.
Here’s what you said online:
Love that the opening of the Opening Ceremony was a speed date with Scotland with a hosted by a lesbian and a gay man. Gaun yirsel', Glesga!

A gay man & woman sing the opening ceremony song, a tongue-in-cheek & camp musical number featuring two men kiss. Brilliant. #Glasgow2014

Opening ceremony a veritable cliche tsunami so far – plus an early gay marriage reference. Marvellous. #CommonwealthGames
