Bermuda Ruling "An Affront to Human Dignity"

20/03/2022

The Los Angeles based gay magazine The Advocate reports that LGBTQIA people in the British overseas territories of the Cayman Islands and Bermuda do not have the right to samesex marriage in the current constitutional arrangements. Leonardo Raznovich described the decision of the Privy Council in London as an “affront to human dignity” and other LGBTQIA activists agreed, noting that their work carries on. Our work will go on. OutBermuda continues to advocate for equality, justice and dignity for all LGBTQ+ Bermudians. We will do so with gratitude to all the advocates and allies who stood by us,” wrote local LGBTQ+ rights group Out Bermuda on Twitter. Meanwhile, the Royal Gazette newspaper reports that well over four hundred thousand Bermudan dollars has been spent by the territories’ government in opposing legal efforts to reform the country’s antiquainted laws.
