Diocese of Aberdeen and Orkney
Dyer is the first woman to be made a bishop by the Scottish Episcopal church since its general synod voted to allow female bishops almost 15 years ago. She is a supporter of same-sex marriage, which was accepted by the Scottish church last summer, in a historic move that resulted in de facto sanctions being imposed by the global Anglican communion. Aberdeen and Orkney was the only diocese in Scotland to oppose the move in consultations. Dyer officiated at a same-sex marriage in October. In the Scottish church, bishops are elected to post.
