Last year, the British governor of Bermuda – the most populous territory – allowed legislation denying LGBT+ people the right to marry in favour of domestic partnerships. British overseas territories should be forced to legalise same-sex marriage, according to a report released by the British parliament this week. Some of the territories, which have their own constitutions and parliaments, have other ideas. The Foreign Affairs Committee document, “Global Britain and the British Overseas Territories: Resetting the Relationship”, strikes a rare interventionist tone for the 14 self-governing jurisdictions.
