Bermuda’s Supreme Court had to repeat itself Wednesday, overturning a law that blocked its previous ruling making same-sex marriage legal on the island.
Last year, the court declared that the North Atlantic Ocean island’s same-sex couples have the right to get married and receive all the benefits that come with it.
In response, lawmakers passed the Domestic Partnerships Act (DPA) in February this year, rescinding same-sex marriage and instead offering couples the ability to obtain civil unions.
LGBT activists encouraged opponents of the DPA in other countries not to boycott the islandbut pressure mounted swiftly anyway.
