Antigua and Barbuda: Repeal of Anti-LGBTQ+ Laws

ECADEA very big court ruling happened in last week but you may have missed it. The High Court in the former British colony of Antigua and Barbuda struck down the colonial-era sodomy laws – including up to 15 year prison sentence that came with convictions. What makes this case even more interesting was the role the government played in the final decision.

Not only will we learn more about the country and what life is like for LGBT people, we will also uncover how significant this court ruling is – not just for Antigua and Barbuda, but also for the rest of the Caribbean. Joining us in this World Wide Wave podcast is Kenita Placide, the Executive Director of the Eastern Caribbean Alliance for Diversity and Equality.
