Bermuda’s Supreme Court has once again struck down a law banning same-sex marriage.

 

On May 5, 2017, the British Overseas Territory’s highest court ruled that same-sex coupleshave the right to marry. Eight months later, Bermuda’s governor John Rankin signed a lawofficially rescinding same-sex marriage and becoming the first national territory in the world to repeal marriage equality.

 

Today, Bermuda’s Supreme Court ruled again it is unconstitutional to ban same-sex marriage five days after the ban took effect.

“Love wins again!” said Zakiya Johnson Lord and Adrian Hartnett-Beasley of OUTBermuda in a statement. “Our hearts and hopes are full, thanks to this historic decision by our Supreme Court and its recognition that all Bermuda families matter. Equality under the law is our birthright, and we begin by making every marriage equal.”

 

Same-sex couples will not be able to marry immediately, as the ruling has been stayed for six weeks while the government considers its next steps.
