This inaugural discussion will focus on lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender (LGBT) health, stigma, rights, and violations in Grenada and around the world.
This event is open to the public and refreshments will be served.

Dr. Peter Gamache, a Visiting Professor from the Turnaround Achievement Network located in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA will facilitate the discussion. In terms of the format for the event, the first part of the discussion will focus on understanding the needs of the LGBT community, and the second would center on discussing the feasibility of next steps for research, advocacy, and policy by using structural change objectives.

We look forward to seeing you there on Friday!  In the meantime, take in this music video for “Minority” by award-winning Namibian acoustic soul artist, Shishani. Its smooth melody and straight forward lyrics are a call for justice and equality of all people regardless of differences.
