Dutch Parliament wants to legalize same sex marriage in the Dutch Caribbean
THE HAGUE - If it is up to the Dutch Parliament, gay marriage will be legalized in Curacao, Aruba and St. Maarten. The House of Representatives wants the position of lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender improve in general.
Recently, the Member of Parliament for the coalition party VVD, Han ten Broeke filed a motion for the equal rights of these groups and very likely he can count on the support or a large number of MPs in the Dutch Parliament.
The motion is addressed to the Dutch government and begins with the observation that the governments in Willemstad, Oranjestad and Philipsburg are not doing enough to entrench the rights of the LGBT.
It also states that LGBTs everywhere in the kingdom should be able to live in freedom and security and that the Dutch Government has a responsibility to alert other countries of the Kingdom on an equal application of human rights and to support positive developments in this area.
