The UK’s new minister for Overseas Territories has made her first official trip and it was here in Cayman.
The Right Honourable Baroness Anelay completed a tour of all three islands and opened the new meeting of the Legislative Assembly Tuesday (4 October).
She then entered controversial territory with comments on same-sex marriage. Baroness Anelay noted what she called a modern relationship based on shared history and linked economies, but she also urged Cayman’s lawmakers to consider legislation that protects gay and lesbian residents and visitors from discrimination. She said the matter is sensitive, but important.
