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
