Bermuda’s SSM repeal
BERMUDA has become the first country to repeal a gay marriage law, prompting a backlash from rights activists.
The British overseas territory had allowed couples of the same gender to marry after a ruling by the island’s Supreme Court in May last year.
But a majority of voters on the socially conservative island opposed the idea in a nonbinding referendum a year earlier, and same-sex marriages have now been replaced with “domestic partnerships”.
Critics called the move a rollback of civil rights.
