    Ofcourse you will have equal marriage rights – that’s the way civilised societies and peoples go. First equality in jobs, housing, etc., the basics, and then civil unions, and then equal marriage — or you could just do the whole lot in one go and miss our civil unions – it depends on who runs the country, the government, or the Catholic church.

    Take your lead from others in the world, who have passed it, and prospered, when a united society without any 2nd class citizens, pulls together in life.

    Equality isn’t a dirty word, and isn’t anything to fear. It only affects those people who aren’t nice to others, and do discriminate, which is a tiny minority. For most people the Human Rights Act and the equality laws simply don’t matter, because they aren’t the sort to break them, whether they were there or not.

    Long overdue human rights and anti-discrimination laws indeed!!!!

    Also I have noticed that Bermuda still has conscription and a 19 year old discriminatory age of consent law from 1994 (Stubbs Bill) on gay men.

    The age of consent for gay men is still 18, while it is only 16 for lesbians and heterosexual people.

    Would the Human Rights Act 2013 say this is discrimination….????

    JUST SAYING!

    The United Kingdom (Scotland, Northern Ireland, Wales and England) and the Crown Territories of Isle Of Man, Gibraltar the Channel Islands of both Jersey and Guernsey – all have an equal age of consent at 16 for everyone now. It is high time that Bermuda also has an equal age of consent at 16 for all too in 2013!

  5. Bermuda should be given a big round of applause for doing the right thing with this
    legislation against discrimination.

    The Afro Caribbean region is overwhelmingly against homosexuality.
    But in Bermuda, they have understood that gay people should be treated as the straight people would like to be treated.

    Only the Bahamas, in this region has come out to change some anti gay laws.

    If you travel only a few miles from Bermuda you are in US states that still don’t have the humanity to protect gays from being fired.
