FOUNDER of the South Trinidad LGBTQIA Jewan Bissoondial says there is need to establish a platform that will represent the views of the LGBTQIA community in south Trinidad.
It will also serve to plan and provide various services for members.
“In keeping with the current nationwide celebration of Pride 2019,” he said, “the south community has embarked on creating this safe platform in south TT so as to engage in social and civic activism that advances the cause of protecting the rights and freedoms of members of this community.
“We will be hosting a series on public discussions on the issues of equity and equal access to opportunities for members of our community.”
The group aims to work collaboratively with other existing groups, he said, which share similar objectives of changing the discriminatory practices of some in this country.
