Anti-LGBT discrimination petition fails

Posted

Colours Cayman, an LGBT advocacy group, submitted a petition to the European Parliament after efforts to engage British authorities about anti-LGBT discrimination failed.

The Cayman Islands are a British Overseas Territory. The petition has been accepted, meaning that the “legal institutions of the European Union will be giving consideration to claims of discrimination. Cayman News Service reports: LGBT people in the UK’s Caribbean territories are being discriminated against compared to other British Overseas Territories, where they are enjoying equal rights to same-sex couples. Colours Cayman stated in a release that “the sad reality is that the unwillingness to change with respect to the remaining …territories”, which includes Cayman, is as a “result of their bigotry, hidden under the guise of cultural differences”.
