LGBT Pride Parade Bernews updates

The Pride website said, “The Parade is the marquee event in the Bermuda Pride 2022 lineup. Starting from outside Victoria Park, we will march through the streets of Hamilton and return to the park for an afternoon of games, entertainment, food and fun. The Parade is a physical and symbolic gesture – recognizing why visibility is so important for our LGBTQ+ community. Visibility is crucial to battling shame and social stigmas and the Parade creates a mobile ‘safe space’ for our communities and allies to demonstrate our desire for equality. Studies show that attending public LGBTQ+ events empowers our community and these events help change hearts and minds when it comes to LGBTQ+ issues.”

    Whole lot of virtue signaling going on.

    • pink buoy says:

      Whole lot of celebrating going on.

      • Really says:

        More like a whole lot of 2 Bermudas is going on! The majority people there was work permit holders and folks who flew in for the events.

        • Lol says:

          You were there?

        • Roger says:

          If this is 2 Bermudas, I know which one I support. The one that allows open mindednesses, rejects bigotry and is in step with much of the modern world.

          If this is the work permit holders and ‘those who flew in’, then they are the ones I want to hang out with.

        • Mike Hind says:

          Really… any evidence of this? Or are you just making things up to suit your agenda?

          • Toodle-oo says:

            He must have one of those top secret hidden passport identifiers that can see them through clothes and long distance to their residences because we all know you just can’t look at a stranger and determine if they’re on a work permit or visiting !

          • Milk says:

            All of the last 3 OBA leaders voted NO, NO and NO and you all still voted OBA or maybe you didn’t vote last election hmmmm.

            • Mike Hind says:

              I’m gonna assume that that was intended for someone else.

        • Question says:

          You can tell ‘work permit holders’ just by looking at them? I doubt it.
          I can tell a dumba$$ just by looking at them, however.

      • Come correct says:

        This is not a true reflection of Bermuda. If this was the OBA would’ve supported same sex marriage and the plp wouldn’t have won 30-6 after telling the voters that they also agreed with a fat NO.

        • saud says:

          Why are you so upset?
          Your Carnivale doesn’t reflect Bermudas heritage at all….but you push it on us anyway.
          Why do you feel a need to push that agenda, yet, you get so upset over the rainbow?
          Clearly, you’re a homophobe because you’re closeted.

        • Robin says:

          FACTS this is so true neither political party desires SSM.

          • saud says:

            The easy solution to your lack of desire is to not get same sex married….but Bermudians are too selfish and closed minded to understand that.

            Lets start a petition to ban interracial marriage. No political party ‘desires’ that either.

            • Lol says:

              True that’s why all whites vote obaubpper and blacks vote plpbiu. Both parties are separated by race all thanks to idiots like you in the OBA. Thanks you for helping it remain 30/6.

              • saud says:

                You’re absolutely right…as you’ve said, All Bermudians are racists….most of them are homophobic as well. That’s a given and not under dispute.

                Thank you for keeping Bermuda in debt, with your race based voting.

          • sandgrownan says:

            Oddly enough you are correct, but for all the wrong reasons. The PLP are pandering to the “church vote”, the OBA thought they could pander to the “church vote”.

            The real truth is that they were both disgusting political choices, and really church leaders need to be dragged in and told how to behave.

            We are all sick and tired of the religious forcing their bullsh*t on everyone else.

    • Toodle-oo says:

      Makes you think of local BLM marches ?

    • tucker says:

      …it’s counters the bigotry you spew, the rest of the year.

  2. Toodle-oo says:

    So pleased to see that someone (Peter C) had memorialized the contribution by the late Dr John Stubbs. I know he must have tried to find a picture of Harry Viera as well but failed . It was the two of them that with courage and fearlessness initially brought the fight for equality to the forefront.
    If it wasn’t for their very early efforts equality in Bermuda would probably still be in the dark ages .

    • Love is love says:

      Sadly their counterparts in the oba refused to pass the law when they had the power to make change for SSM couples, but instead gave away an airport and $185 million Morgan’s Point we continue to pay for.

      • Wahoo says:

        All you can think of is Morgan’s Point and the airport? We have $4B debt saddling our great grandchildren brought about by PLP. Dr. Stubbs was a good man and desevered the title “Honorable” more than most.

      • saud says:

        Sadly, the plp supporters have been lied to and don’t understand that their hospital, cost more than anything ever built. LMFAO

        It’s so sad that the only hobby Bermudians have…is racism and homophobia. LOL

      • tucker says:

        The OBA is just as bigoted as the PLP….the only difference is that the OBA didn’t spend $500K of money that you don’t have, to beg your white British overlords for permission to legislate discrimination against a very small subset of society.

        This indicates to the rest of the world that you are petty, bigoted and hate filled people.

      • Joe Bloggs says:

        Love is love, has it occurred to you that the PLP Government can reverse any change to the law that the OBA made? The fact that the PLP Government have not changed a law means that there is no political will to change, it does not mean that the law cannot be changed.

        • Wow says:

          Has it occurred to you that the ubpOBA continue to play the race game by using black men to try and win elections. Do they ever learn? NO ! Try another tactic like changing the name! Oh you already did that.

        • Move on says:

          Why change anything? Didn’t they explain to everyone before the election that gay marriage was off the table and won 30-6. The OBA also knows it’s best to stay off this topic.

          • saud says:

            Why not celebrate Bermudas bigotry…market yourselves to middle amerika…they hate the gays as well. You all have a lot in common…except that your racism doesn’t align.

            • Ja says:

              The OBA said no first and the the PLP said no second. Well done both political parties.

              • saud says:

                The plp even spent money you don’t have…to discriminate.

                Bravo…the PLP = UBP/OBA


              • Toodle-oo says:

                The OBA left it up to the (local) justice system and everything was going fine until the PLP decided to challenge it.
                So saying ‘the OBA said no’ isn’t the same as what the PLP ‘said’ .
                And remember , it was the PLP who changed the HR act so they could get their way .

                • Nancy says:

                  The oba are so racist they believe that changing a party name and placing people of color as a leader will help them again win black supporters.

          • Joe Bloggs says:

            This should not be a political debate.

            The fact that the Bermuda Government had to amend the Human Rights Act to make sure its bigoted agenda was followed means that in the eyes of our Government the LGBTQ+ community are not deserving of human rights.

          • sandgrownan says:

            Bermudians are pricks. More news at 11.

      • Lol says:

        You should read up on Morgans point.
        It was the PLP and their racism that killed that deal in 1999.
        You’re so poor, you can’t handle the truth.

  3. Andrew Tate says:

    Andrew Tate is what society needs. The west is being emasculated while the East Rises. I’m atheist btw so haha

  4. Mike Hind says:

    I see a lot of partisan sniping going on.

    Here’s the thing… if you think YOUR political party is better than the other one? You’re wrong. They both suck. ESPECIALLY on the topic of Marriage Equality.

    The sooner we get that through our skulls, the sooner we can throw away this “party loyalty” nonsense they’re using to get away with not doing the job of running this country to the benefit of ALL of us.

    We’re being used by ALL of them.
