Trinidad & Tobago: Same Sex Issues

Globewriter comments on a Senate debate about a clause of the Children's Bill “involving a clause that includes buggery”; B.C. Pires adds: “The People’s Partnership of UNC [United National Congress] MPs [Ministers of Parliament] yesterday refused, despite urgings from Independent senators, to decriminalize same gender sexual activity between minors – even while ploughing ahead with decriminalizing the same activity between boys and girls. If ever there were a plain human rights issue, sexual orientation is it.”

  •  As of my knowledge the legislative bodies of many states have passed statuary changes in their constitution that allows same-sex marriages.Then too many of the 
    states still prohibits the same sex marriages or marriages between persons of same gender.
