This year, for the first time, the West Indian American Day Carnival celebration in Brooklyn, N.Y., welcomed an LGBT contingent.
Members of Caribbean LGBT marched a procession for the event, held earlier this month, with a banner identifying their organization, and they chanted, “End Homophobia Now.” They sought to draw attention to anti-LGBT hate crimes in Caribbean nations, including the recent murder of Jamaican Dwayne Jones. Caribbean LGBT also works for marriage equality and other LGBT civil rights.
