(Bridgetown, December 13, 2022) The Republic of Barbados is the latest Caribbean nation to declare unconstitutional, laws that discriminate against lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender people.
In a third case of historic precedent, The High Court of The Republic of Barbados, affirmed the constitutional rights of LGBTQ+ citizens by striking down the country’s buggery laws.
ECADE, Equals and Butterfly Barbados applaud this decision on behalf of all LGBTQ+ people in Barbados and the Caribbean.
Full recognition of LGBTQ+ rights in the Caribbean cannot be achieved without a united and inclusive community that accounts for gender diverse persons.
ECADE invites our LGBTQ+ Caribbean community and allies to open your hearts and arms to gender diverse persons within the region, with the "You matter, I matter, We matter", campaign.
