Do we know more about the history and struggles of gay, lesbian and transgender people in New York City or Jamaica, South Africa or Cuba, than we do about our own community right here in Trinidad and Tobago?
Do you think there’s anything to know? Would you like to learn?
Do you want to share with other people those sweet stories about back in the day that you laugh or tear up at with those three good friends who are still alive or haven’t migrated? The story your godfather told you about that bar he used to go to, the characters who were the regulars, the people you wouldn’t imagine used to go there, and the time the police raided it?
Do you know your country? Do you know that there’ve been Pride celebrations in Trinidad & Tobago for 15 years? That a host of colourful and unsung characters have made unrecognized contributions to GLBT community in Trinbago.
CAISO wants to hear these stories; and to share these stories with you!
Stay tuned for our post-Pride history event. And e-mail us if you have history stories you want to share.
