How to Support LGBTQ-Owned Small Businesses & Resources

Supporting LGBTQ-owned enterprises is especially important in the current situation. With COVID-19 and an increased awareness around underprivileged groups, it’s time to show real support to all these groups and generate a better world at large. LGBTQ owners need support at a time when people are becoming aware of different demographics that do not have an equal platform to excel in the world of business. To read about some of the best ways to support LGBTQ-owned businesses right now, please visit this website.

Youth Throne Speech: “We Must Work In Unity”

Bermuda’s Youth Parliament held their official opening at The House of Assembly on Wednesday Nov 13, with Youth Premier Kennedy Middleton delivering the Youth Throne Speech.

"Marriage is a civil right unfortunately only afforded to heterosexual couples while gay couples are discriminated against. Earlier this year the United States Supreme Court ruled in favour of gay marriage and same sex marriage was legalized in the United Kingdom last year in 2014. With the legalisation of gay marriage we see equality, we recognize the civil rights of all people and we do not discriminate against them on the basis of their sexuality. When we have a foundation of equality only then are we able to look from the perspective of other people. Although we will never know the discrimination they face, we can at least move towards becoming a more accepting society. A society which is progressive and tolerate of all people and this can have positive impacts on the youth diminishing bullying and negative stigma surrounding being gay or being different." - read full speech on Bernews


Earlier this year 1,204 voted on a Bernews Poll with 71% in favor of Same Sex Marriage

Should Bermuda legalize same-sex marriage?

Yes we should! (71%, 852 Votes)

No we should not! (22%, 268 Votes)

I don't agree with marriage, but support offering a civil ceremony/union (6%, 75 Votes)

None of the above (1%, 9 Votes)


THE ROYAL GAZETTE ONLINE POLL earlier this year 6,621 voted with the majority in favor of Same Sex Marriage Combining same sex civil unions and same sex marriage = 61.5%

Should Bermuda allow same sex civil unions, same sex marriage or maintain the status quo?

Same Sex Civil Union: 14.5%

Same Sex Marriage: 47.1%

Maintain Status Quo: 38.4%
