Not in Barbados! Government Minister Says No Gay Marriages Will Be Allowed
Minister of Social Care and Community Development Steve Blackett is sending a clear message to “external forces and internal forces” that same-sex marriage will not be tolerated in Barbados.
In an address at a meeting of the ruling Democratic Labour Party (DLP), he complained that lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and intersex (LGBTI) people were “badgering” Government to accept same-sex unions. But he said that while he was tolerant of the LGBTI community, the DLP administration would not cave to their demands.
