On a positive note, Britian is about to legalize same sex marriage.

Speaking of the UK legalization, upon the news Queen Elizabeth II will wed her longtime partner.

Quote:
Queen Elizabeth II publicly announced her plans to marry her longtime partner, 63-year-old Denise Whitelock, as soon as the law goes into effect. “After more than 30 years of sharing a committed and loving partnership, I am absolutely thrilled that Denise and I are finally able to seal our union in marriage,” said the reigning British monarch in a press release, speaking on behalf of her partner, a retired dog breeder, with whom she lives part-time in a Kensington Garden flat. “Marriage is something we’ve both wanted for a very long time, but never had an opportunity to pursue because of the unequal and antiquated marriage laws of this country. We’re delighted that the government finally took this important step forward, and we couldn’t be happier to announce our official engagement.” The Queen also informed members of the press that, as this was her second marriage, she and Denise had decided to hold a low-key ceremony with close friends and family.

So while I'm completely for LGBT full equal rights on every basis, I do struggle with the concept of intolerance. Someone who is against gay marriage would be labeled intolerant; however, at the same time, an individual who is against the right's proclaimed "traditional marriage" would also be intolerant, no? It's the aspect that frustrates me the most when I hear people debate gay rights/other beliefs.

No. One belief discriminates. The other does not.

Discrimination isn't a prerequisite of intolerance.

I'm pretty sure denying one's right to marry is out of intolerance.

Those who think marriage should be between a man and woman wish the law would reflect their belief, that the government wouldn't tolerate same-sex marriage as a legal institution.

On the other hand, people in favour of gay marriage aren't opposed to straight people getting married (aka "traditional marriage"). They tolerate the love of two people regardless of gender, and want the law to be tolerant and recognise same-sex marriage.
