Coming together under the banner Generation Change a new coalition of young lesbian, gay, bisexual and transgender people from across the Caribbean, have issued a passionate call for change in society and the law to embrace equality and inclusion for all at a unique conference in Trinidad & Tobago.
'Generation Change' brings together activists from Trinidad and Tobago, Barbados, St. Lucia, Jamaica, Belize and Guyana.
"We have heard fine words from some of our Prime Ministers and people with the power to make change happen but so far we see nothing being done," said Jeremy Steffan Edwards, one of the event organisers. "The younger generation of LGBT people are not prepared to wait forever to be treated equally. We are not asking for any special rights, just the same rights as every other Caribbean citizen. It's our future and it's time for those who can make change happen to do so."
