KaleidoScot launches an LGBTI Scottish Independence poll

Scottish Referendum
Vote now on KaleidoScot’s Scottish Independence Poll

On 18th September Scotland will hold a referendum on whether to become an independent country or to remain part of the UK.

KaleidoScot is now running its own poll asking specifically LGBTI people if they prefer Scotland to be independent or continue to be part of the United Kingdom.

This KaleidoScot poll can help you focus on the issues that matter to you as an LGBTI voter and also make your voice heard before the 18th September referendum.

Do you think Scotland and LGBTI rights would be served better as an independent country or within the United Kingdom? What are the key issues that matter to you? This is your chance to make your views heard. The poll is open right now, 3 September and closes on the 11 of September.

The poll is totally anonymous and does not ask you to identify or reveals your identity in any way.

KaleidoScot will publish the results on the 12 September with a detailed analysis.


With regards to the campaign groups, Better Together (the campaign to remain in the UK) and Yes Scotland (the campaign for independence) have outlined their positions regarding LGBTI rights, you can find out more here:

Throughout the period we will also publish interviews with key Scottish politicians and campaigners from the YES and Better Together campaigns.

From Thursday we shall publish the first of a series of interviews, starting with Patrick Harvie, Co-Convener of the Scottish Greens party, advocating a YES vote.

Make sure you vote in KaleidoScot’s poll and we urge you to take up your democratic right to vote on Scotland’s future, whether as an independent country or remaining within the United Kingdom on the 18th of September.

  1. yes all the way

  2. Yes yes yes and this just in,……..YES

  3. yes

  4. Please publish whatever becomes the result. I am not lgbt so I wont vote but keen to see result

  5. I'm voting Yes. The NHS has been good to me, and the way it has been ripped apart in England and Wales terrifies me. Even if Independence does nothing other than stop the privatization ideologues getting their hands on the NHS, it will be worth it. Make no mistake, the NHS down South is being de-funded, and when the Government of England cuts health spending they will cut the money returned to Scotland to spend on health too on the grounds that if it isn't needed down south then it isn't needed up here either. Don't think Labour will prevent it either, they were all set to introduce the same privatised services up here last time they were in power in Holyrood and will continue the same defunding and bringing in of private companies down south too. Independence is the only way to save the NHS!

  6. A no vote is a vote against democracy.


  7. Hi! I would have liked to see more categories for sexuality and gender identity here… and for them to be separated more clearly. What about 'queer', 'genderqueer', 'non-binary', 'pansexual', etc. I know the list can be long, but perhaps you could have included an 'Other; please specify' box. ps Thanks for doing htis. pps YES.
