Across the United Kingdom, civil partnerships, which were originally introduced in 2004 to offer similar rights to same-sex couples, are being reevaluated-the government is discussing whether to open these partnerships up to straight couples or repeal altogether.
And Lib Dem Jamie Stone said he was "stunned" that Johnson did not think protecting the rights of gay people in Bermuda was an "exceptional case" worthy of his intervention.
Sarah Kate Ellis, president and CEO of GLAAD, issued this statement: "As the world faces a resurgence of anti-LGBTQ activism, Bermuda just earned the shameful recognition of becoming the first national territory to strip away marriage from loving and committed LGBTQ couples".

Around half a dozen same-sex marriages that have been officiated since May 2017 will now be recognised as a "domestic partnership".
Same-sex marriage was approved by Bermuda's supreme court in May previous year and was celebrated by the island's small gay community.

But LGBTQ civil rights groups said the unprecedented decision gave same-sex couples second-class status.
She added: The FCO claims to stand for LGBT+ rights, yet in a territory THEY GOVERN they are waving through the repealing of same-sex marriage.
Walton Brown, the minister for home affairs, commented that the law would balance opposition to gay marriage while staying in line with European court rulings that protect and recognise same-sex couples on the island, Associated Press reported.
