Eight transgender activists from the Bahamas, Haiti, Jamaica, Guyana and Antigua have formed a new Caribbean advocacy initiative, the Transgender Caucus Group.
Its initial organizational meeting was held during last week’s Caribbean Women and Sexual Diversity Conference (CWSDC) on Saint Lucia.
The Eastern Caribbean Alliance for Diversity and Equality (ECADE), which organized the conference, announced today:
LBTI Conference Births New Caribbean Trans* Group
(Castries, Saint Lucia, Oct. 13, 2017) During the 5th Annual Caribbean Women and Sexual Diversity Conference [CWSDC], held during the first week of October 2017, on Saint Lucia, trans men and women from across the region convened to form a new Transgender Caucus Group.
This year’s CWSDC was the first time that such a representative group of transgender activists from different parts of the region were together in one location, and they made the most of the opportunity. Activists took the initiative to hold dialogue about moving forward during two lunch-time meetings during the conference.
