Governor responds to Colours Cayman discrimination claims

The Governor says human rights is everyone’s business in the Cayman Islands.
LGBTQ advocacy group Colours Cayman penned a letter to her excellency Helen Kilpatrick trying to find out which minister is responsible for human rights.
Gender Affairs minister Hon Tara Rivers has said in the past that LGBTQ issues are outside of that ministry’s remit.
In her response the Governor said it’s the Premier’s duty to allocate ministerial portfolios. But human rights is everybody’s business.
“Human rights is an issue for everyone,” Ms Kilpatrick said in a statement.
“It is the responsibility of all government servants including all ministers in the Cayman Islands to uphold the highest standards of compliance with human rights and international obligations,” she says.
