Gay Marriage

A recent theme stirred up the local press and should be celebrated during the Pride Curaçao 2021, it’s the same-sex marriage. On September 13, 2021, the judge of the Court of First Instance in Willemstad ruled that the current provision, as provided for in the Curaçao constitution, that marriage can only be entered into between a man and a woman is contrary to the principle of equality and the prohibition of discrimination. The decision was made in an open case presented by the organization Human Rights Caribbean on behalf of two women who wish to marry.

The prohibition on same-sex marriage has been a topic of discussion on the island for some time. In the recent decision of the Court of First Instance, legal regulations and developments with the Kingdom of the Netherlands, the region and the world regarding the subject were discussed. According to the judge, the current impediment is not only unconstitutional, but also goes against the spirit friendly of the Caribbean island. The sentence is, therefore, a step towards the emancipation of LGBTQIA+ people and an asset for the entire community and minority living in Curaçao.
